BAMYAN (PAN): Like other provinces, Bamyan is also among the provinces where infrastructure for government departments did not exist after the collapse of Taliban regime.

He informed multiple rehabilitation projects were established for the benefits of common people including the rehabilitation of 200 kilometers road and construction of bridges in different parts of the provinces.       
He told Pajhwok Afghan News different projects have been completed in education and agriculture sectors including the construction of schools buildings and distribution of refined seeds among farmers.
Engineer Salma Nali Sadaqi, provincial head of ruler development said more than $6 million have been spent through National Solidarity Program (NSP) on the construction of roads, small and large dams and schools in Bamayan.
The NSP has enhanced the economic conditions of the people, she remarked.
On the contrary, members of provincial council and civil societies said the ongoing projects were not up to the mark to satisfy the demands of people. They said the provincial authorities neglected the construction of vital road between the capital and Yakawalng district.
Hussain Ahmadi, an activist of civil society in Bamyan told Pajhwok Afghan News rehabilitation project in the province were initiated by the government in greater interests of the people, adding that construction of government infrastructure never rehabilitate the common masses.
