Deh Sabz Residents Endorse Abdullah

In a gathering held on Wednesday, residents of Kabul's Deh Sabz District announced their support for the candidacy of Abdullah Abdullah in the upcoming presidential elections.

Addressing the gathering, Abdullah argued that if the Mujahideen were part of the current political system, the security situation in Afghanistan would have been much better and there would be no need for the presence of international forces.

"If the current government had focused on the Mujahideen and valued the Mujahideen who supported this government, the situation today would have been totally different; there would not have been a need for foreign troops," Abdullah said.

Abdullah's First and Second Vice Presidents also mounted criticisms on the government and echoed their ticket-leader's claims.

The participants of the gathering demanded Abdullah focus on the needs of the people and the country if elected in April.

"I came to know what Abdullah says and what he pledges before I cast my vote for him," a Deh Sabz resident named Mashal said.

Abdullah also promised to progress efforts for the construction of New Kabul City, a large city-planning project that has seen delays and setbacks in the last couple years.

"You and your families must vote in the elections," Kabul MP Allah Gul Mujahid said told the crowd. "Casting your vote in the election is a form of Jihad. I will cast my vote as well."
