President Ashraf Ghan visited western Badghis province on Sunday and officially inaugurated the first and second sections of the Qaisar-Laman ring road project.
Speaking at the inauguration of the Qaisar-Laman road project in Badghis province, Gani thanked the Asia Bank for its support of the Badghis's Qaisar-Laman road. “In the upcoming two years, you will witness a rail link to Badghis. It will change the lives of the people,” Ghani said. “It is an honor for me to inaugurate this project today in this province.”
Local officials, MPs, Provincial Council members and residents of the province participated in the ceremony.
The first and second phase of the ring road is 82km of the total of the 233 km-ring road of Afghanistan. The first and second phase of the project will be complete in 913 days, according to Presidential Palace statement.
With the completion of the whole project, the South Asia will be linked to Central Asia by this project, it said.
“Badghis should have a transit future,” Ghani said, adding that Badghis and Herat are provinces which could provide wind electricity in the future.
Ghani warned that the security situation had to be changed in the next year and the forces should take an offensive role. “It is an order to security organizations that they go on the offensive in the next year, but the people must also support the government,” he said.
President Ghani said that Qaisar-Laman is one of our biggest national projects. “I hope this project will be supported everywhere in the country. It is necessary that such projects be implemented in other provinces.”
