Starting construction work on Qaisar-Laman road is a part of state commitments made for building standard roads and highways, now implementing in practice.
Afghanistan is across road that connects South Asia with central and west of the continent. Therefore, using this unique opportunity has made building standard roads and highway at top of its priorities and launching various programs wants to achieve this great objective.
The state programs for achieving this goal is appreciable but there are some points that the relevant authorities must consider deeply: we should not this bitter fact that in last decades we have been witness of the construction or reconstruction a great number of roads and highway but the low quality of constructional companies is challenging and questionable. Most of roads due to low quality of their reconstruction work already damaged and people satirically call such roads, “using only for once.”
The other issue is ensuring the security of roads which play a great role in economic growth of the country and considered of great importance, therefore, the armed oppositions and our neighboring countries that are against the economic growth of the country by using every evil means seeking to destroy the roads that are vital for the growth of  our national and rural areas economy and to prevent the unity of ethnic groups, because, only with a true and strong national unity we can achieve our objectives and end the conspiracies of the enemies and figures  who want  by creating discriminations among our people who have lived beside each other for centuries, achieve their hideous objectives.
