Dr. Abdullah Abdullah’s message to the people of Ghor Province: “There is no alternative team for you to vote for except us”

Tens of thousands of Ghoris came out and rallied for the Reform and Partnership team when Dr. Abdullah landed at Ghor Airport.

Dr. Abdullah spoke sincerely to the people of Ghor and told them that Ghor is a forgotten province in Afghanistan and that the promises that the current government gave in the past 13 years were all broken.

Dr. Abdullah explained his programs and promises for Ghor province and Afghanistan point by point and the people of Ghor cheered with joy after hearing them. The following were promises Dr. Abdullah made for the inhabitants of Ghor:

  1. The road from Kabul to Herat via Bamiyan and Ghor will be constructed in his first term in office.
  2. He will connect the capital of Ghor province with all of Ghor’s districts and remote regions.
  3. Dams to generate electricity will be built in Ghor province
  4. We will pay attention more to the religious schooling and scholars
  5. More consideration will be taken towards commerce and agriculture in this province
  6. We will take measures to return the displaced and the refugees to their native villages and towns.

Before Dr. Abdullah ended his speech, he explained the current situation and the election process to the people for them to be aware of the realities and the problems the Reform and Partnership team is facing.
