ARG Criticizes Dostum For Remarks Against President

Following remarks by the First Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum where he accused President Ashraf Ghani of nepotism, the Presidential Palace (ARG) on Tuesday said the statement made by Dostum is in contravention of his position and is uncalled for in the current situation in the country.

The Presidential Palace said in a statement that the accusations made by Dostum against a number of government officials need to be reviewed.

ARG said in the statement that government is responsible for addressing citizens’ complaints against the Taliban and other forces involved in clashes so as to assess whether crimes have been committed.

Dostum on Monday accused Ghani of nepotism and said people from the president’s ethnic group are important to him, but those from his province are even more important.

“If you speak Pashto with President [Ashraf Ghani], you will be a good person, and if you speak Pashto and you are from Logar [province], then you are very good,” he said at a press conference in Jawzjan on Monday.
