After the withdrawal of the US and NATO troops, Afghanistan is again witnessing the harsh rule of the Taliban. However, addressing a virtual meeting on Sunday, President Ashraf Ghani has stated that he will change the country’s situation in the next six months. Let’s see what he is up to.
Ashraf Ghani to bring Several Reforms in Afghanistan in the Next 6 Months
President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday in a virtual meeting that he will bring a change in Afghanistan in the next 6 months. He has assured the authorities as well as the people of the country that he is likely to bring reform. Moreover, he said that the Taliban have become crueler and more oppressive since the US and NATO troops have left the war region. Besides that, they have captured several cities and oppressed people in captured regions. Therefore, President Ghani will bring a change in the country as protecting the cities is his first priority.
What did the President Say?
Ghani said that the Taliban do not wish peace, prosperity, progress, and harmony. They want to convert Afghanistan into a battlefield and make pointless negotiations. Moreover, President Ghani said that the government and the public desires peace but the Taliban only want surrender. He further stated that they don’t want to engage in meaningful negotiations and turn the land into a combat zone. Therefore, the government will need to perform a countrywide mobilization. Ghani also added that the Taliban are now stronger than before.
A Brutal Attack in Kandahar on Sunday, the Second-Largest City in Afghanistan
President Ghani’s statement comes after the Taliban’s attacks on Sunday in several cities across Afghanistan. The Afghan forces fought the Taliban fighters after they tried to attack several regions. Moreover, the Taliban fighters attacked the Kandahar airport, the country’s second-largest city with at least three rockets. On the other hand, a Taliban spokesperson said that they attacked the airport because the government forces were using it to strike against them. But it seems that they are trying to conceal the mistake that they’ve just done. Henceforth, it is very important to stop the Taliban before they destroy the whole country and oppress the citizens.
The Taliban Offered Meaningless Negotiations a Few Days Ago
A few days ago, the Taliban also negotiated a deal with a President. It stated that the Taliban will promote peace in Afghanistan if the President gets down from his position. Moreover, they said that they will bring several reforms in the country like allowing women education and work. But their acts seem like they are in no mood to promote peace and harmony in the country. They want to torture people, especially women, and deprive them of their rights.
