Lawmakers in Afghanistan’s Wolesi Jirga—the lower house of Parliament--on Wednesday questioned the Afghan government’s security strategy against the insurgents—saying a lack of strong management in the security agencies has worsened the security situation in the country.
Some MPs suggested that the people should take up arms and fight.
Other MPs suggested that the Parliament should summon the National Security Adviser and other security officials in a parliamentary session to respond to the concerns of the people and the MPs.
MPs said the Afghan security and defense forces have 'very high morale' to fight the Taliban, however, they evacuated some districts due to the neglect of security officials.
“Top security chiefs, including the national security adviser and his deputies, must be summoned here,” said MP Arif Rahmani.
“Some people are suffering from this disease and they are trying to find money in the security agencies,” said MP Kamal Naser Osuli.
“The Wolesi Jirga is staying alongside the country’s brave security and defense forces with full force,” said Parliament Speaker Mir Rahman Rahmani.
“I swear to God, the blood of these people is on our shoulders,” said MP Sadiq Qaderi.
