Ruined Ghazni heritage sites to be rehabilitated: Bawari

Ruined Ghazni heritage sites to be rehabilitated: Bawari

Dec 11, 2017 - 17:59

GHAZNI (Pajhwok): Information and Culture Minister Rassoul Bawari on Monday inaugurated three projects worth 60 million afghanis in southern Ghazni province.

The minister said the projects included construction of buildings for the provincial information and culture department, museum and public library.

He said the projects cost 60 million afghanis paid by the Ministry of Information and Culture.

“Construction of these buildings was very important, particularly the building for the public library,” he said.

Bawari promised to rehabilitate ruined heritage sites in Ghazni province.

Governor Abdul Karim Matin, who also participated in the inauguration ceremony, said some historic sites of the province seriously need preservation.

“Ghazni is a historic province and if its historic sites are not reconstructed, they would vanish forever,” he said.

Asadullah, provincial information and culture director, said they had been facing many problems  in the absence of a proper building.

“The TV station, library, the information and culture department and the youths department were all in one building that created serious problems for our work,” he said.

But their problem was solved with construction of the new building.

The buildings for the information and culture department, the public library, Milli Television, museum and some other departments had been destroyed in a Taliban attack in 2014.
