 'All districts in Baghlan may fall into Taliban hands'

PUL-I-KHUMRI - Baghlan provincial council members have warned of falling all the districts into the hands of Taliban, who are already in control of almost 11 districts in the northern province.

A fragile government's writ was prevailing in Barka, Tala Barfak, Farang, Khost and Dahna-i-Ghori districts, the council members told Pajhwok Afghan News. They added the remaining 11 districts were under complete control of the Taliban insurgents.

They warned if serious measures were not taken in this regard, all the districts could fall into the hands of the Taliban.

The council chief Muhammad Rasould Muhsini said Taliban had established their military centres in those districts. He said the issue had been discussed with the officials concerned, but no action had so far been taken.

As the militants were well-equipped, security forces were unable to push them back, he said.

But governor, Abdul Majid, rejected the claim as baseless. "There are some security problems, but not that much serious as the council members say," he added.

Residents have also confirmed the presence of Taliban in some of the districts. The Taliban have been in control of most parts of Barka district, they say.
A resident of the district, Abdul Ghayor, 50, said Taliban resolved their problems and imposed their own laws. The Afghan government could only control the district, he added.
