KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani has stressed strict measures to deal with land-grabbers, calling social justice vital to eliminating problems in northern Baghlan province.

A statement from the Presidential Palace said on Sunday Ghani expressed the view during a meeting with local representatives and elders from Baghlan province.

The visiting delegation thanked the president for paying personal attention toward the problems facing the province and urged him to order an investigation into the killing of Haji Alam Jan Mujahid, the provincial council member.

The president said a unit of 400 personnel had been formed in Kabul to wrest back the grabbed lands. The unit was able to get back state lands and assets, he added.

Ghani pledged resolving the electricity issue of Baghlan and implementing reforms in military and civilian institutions. In addition, a presidential delegation headed by Advisor Abdul Sattar Saadat will travel to Baghlan soon.
