Bamyan counter-narcotics dept gets new building

Bamyan counter-narcotics dept gets new building

Jan 09, 2018 - 15:47

BAMYAN (Pajhwok): Counter-narcotics minister Salamat Azimi on Tuesday inaugurated a newly-constructed building for her ministry’s provincial department in central Bamyan province.

The two-storey building on one acre of land in Bamyan City cost 11.7 million afghanis, said Hussain Nazari, Bamyan counternarcotics department director.

He told the building’s inauguration ceremony that the structure had eight rooms and toilets built on a standard and basic way.

Minister Azimi said drug trafficking and cultivation had been zero in Bamyan and the province’s poppy-free status earned it $1million per year for development projects as part of a 10-year program supported by the international community.

She hoped Bamyan people, who supported the government in every sphere, would also cooperate in preventing drug addiction in the community.

She called the culture of counter-narcotics as important and urged all people and families to help combat the phenomenon.

Deputy governor of Bamyan Mohammad Asif Muballigh appreciated the counternarcotics ministry’s cooperation with the provincial department in executing several development projects.

He hailed the people of Bamyan as peaceful who always helped the government in countering drugs.
