Kabul (BNA) Attention and providing the needs of police and other the homeland serving people who are defending the homeland and national values is a national, morale and religious obligation and any procrastination in that regard could be considered as a national treason.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the painful condition of police personnel in Ghor and Kunduz provinces talks about irresponsible even hostile dealing with police personnel who are bravely defending the national values and with least possibilities fighting against terrorism and foreign agents.
Lack of food stuff, weapons and ammunitions in battle field in Ghor and Kunduz provinces has prompted police personnel who are fighting in frontlines of the battle for removing hunger and starvation eat spoiled food or go to the houses of people and beg for a piece of bread or starve, while the relevant authorities enjoy a luxurious life both at home and office.
What have been said about painful state of police forces in Ghor and Kunuz provinces are a small part of problems that our security forces patiently endure.
Without doubt, our heroes this is our troops in other provinces are suffering the same problems.
It is a clear fact that the current critical situation which police personnel sustain in Ghor and Kunduz originates from the existence of corruption in procurement section of ministry of interior that the ministry itself acknowledge to it.
Sources in ministry have said that in relation with lack of food stuff and ammunition in Ghor and Kunduz provinces two officials of procurement department are under pursuit. The two officials have imposed a situation on police personnel that is worse than the attacks and conspiracies launched by our enemies. Therefore the case of the two officials should investigate as a case of national treason.
The existence of corruption in defense and security organs is not a new thing. We have heard repeatedly about selling weapons and ammunition to armed opposition and terrorist group, as once president Ghani called the ministry of interior is the center of corruption. However, the way of fighting against corruption in these organs is not yet known or if the relevant organs have done something for eradication of corruption the people have not informed.
The people expect the state under the leadership of president Ghani who himself have said that he implements justice in the country to settle the problems of the brave sons of the country who fight against the enemies at cost of their lives.
Also, the people wish the relevant authorities to do their best for attracting the confidence of people to government otherwise in existence of a such a situation they will lose their trust to the government and will not send their beloved sons to joined Afghan armed forces.

Kabul (BNA) Using Chah Bahar port by Iran, Afghanistan and India is a sign of strengthening relations among the countries of the region and economic improvement of the region.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes India has sent its wheat package via Chah Bahar Iranian port to Afghanistan.
The construction and expansion work of the port started last year while the leaders of the countries were present in the ceremony for the occasion. At the first step, fifteen thousand Tons of Indian assisted wheat to Afghanistan will reach the country via this port.
India intended within next six months export one hundred and Ten thousand tons of wheat via Chah Bahar port to Afghanistan.
Afghanistan and India are looking Chah Bahar port as an alternative transit route and consider it as a connection point between the countries that will decrease economic dependencies of Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, the three countries this is Afghanistan, Iran and India believe Chah Bahar port will play an important role in economic growth and regional cooperation. While there are countries and circles that use Trade and transit routes as a political means against other countries for obtaining their objectives.
While the new world order asks the countries for restoring stability and economic growth of their countries keep away trade and economic relations from political issues. Getting this aim is only possible, when the countries consciously act for economic growth and prioritize mutual interests and follow it in practice.
Some people wrongly believe that India and Afghanistan by shaping economic relation is seeking to marginalize Pakistan while the two countries are thinking about regional economic growth not isolating the third country.
However, this bitter fact once again should be repeated that Pakistan with its persistent adventurous policies has declined commercial and economic deals with Afghanistan.  Recently Pakistan has increase customs duties on Afghan fresh fruits and other commercial goods exportation.  This illegal and tyrannical move of Pakistan considers nothing but sabotaging Afghan economic and putting further pressure on the country.
In existence of such cold and strange dealing of Pakistan, that country should not complain about improvement of Afghanistan’s economic ties with other countries.
It would be better for Pakistan instead of following adventurous policies, chose the way of regional coordination and cooperation and should know the undeniable fact that Chah Bahar port and other economic opportunities can provide the ground for the countries of the region to reach each other.

Kabul (BNA) National Assembly or parliament is the symbol of sovereignty, honor and identity of the country, where the people exercise their will; therefore it should not become the scene of personal differences and tensions.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes unpleasant and painful stories leaks from inside parliament that state that inner difference among administrative delegation of the parliament has caused a tense and regretful situation there it would never be to the benefit of our people and nation.
The event inside the national assembly started after that, the first deputy speaker of parliament accused the speaker and head of secretariat of the house to corruption and contrary to that the above parliament official accusing the first deputy speaker to misusing, presented some documents to the assembly in that regard.
The problem is that the inner differences of the house has not only badly affected the activities and programs of parliament but also is a severe blow on activities of the government and the life of people. The crisis takes place in a time; the country is in fragile and sensitive situation and suffering economic, political and security problems. If tension continues in the parliament without doubt it would it would seriously harm the state as a whole.
Political elites believe there are certain circles inside the parliament who are trying to disrupt the working process of the state or sabotage it, while parliament is a symbol of sovereignty, honor, dignity and identity of the country, it should not be used for personal interests and demands.
Because of the critical tensions that the parliament suffering, the debates on many laws and bills that should be indorsed delayed. The process of introduction of nominated minsters and some other programs also disrupted.
It would be the urgent need that the members of parliament, considering their national responsibilities and obligations take out parliament from this shameful and painful situation and win the confidence of people; otherwise they will lose their credibility among people forever.
The advice of people, politicians and the activists of civil society to the president of the country is this: To assign an authoritative delegation to investigate the current accusations in the parliament, if it is needed the immunity of adventurous members of parliament cancelled and to find a proper way for the permanent solution for the problem which bitterly the national assembly suffering.

Kabul (BNA) October 27 is the international day of preserving audio- visual heritages and Afghanistan for having an old civilization and valuable prescriptions gives special importance to the day.
BNA cultural affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes October 27th is the international day for preserving of the world audio – visual heritages. The day is of great importance for Afghanistan, because the country has experienced many civilizations and nurtured great cultural people in her bosom.
Since protecting and safeguarding such historical and ancient heritages are now at the focus attentions, it would be necessary for relevant authorities and entire Afghan people to deeply think deeply about the proper way of protecting those invaluable heritages. Because, just honoring and being prideful for having an ancient culture and glorious history would not be sufficient. If we know ourselves the real owners of this ancient civilization, we should have a strong will and practical program for protecting these national values.
If we look precisely at our spiritual properties, Afghan National Archive is one of the richest archives in the region. Although, Afghan National Archive has experienced a grave situation, fortunately it has kept its spiritual values. In spite of that our pictorial archive is not an old archive, but it is rich and represents our ancient and glorious history.
The important thing is this, although the existence of such archives, or audio – visual and calligraphy heritages are a matter of pride, but compassion and precise planning for preserving the cultural heritages would be a matter of great pride, therefore it would be the urgent obligation and duty of relevant authorities to take effective and practical measures for safeguarding the heritages and spare no any efforts in that regard.
