Oct 23, 2017 - 22:22

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Some lawmakers on Monday termed the security bosses’ request for holding closed-doors sessions of Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon as an attempt to deceive people, saying the Saturday’s session had nothing special.

The Wolesi Jirga on Saturday summoned security bosses to brief the lawmakers on deteriorated security situation but Defence Minister Tariq Shah Bahrami requested the session be held behind closed doors as sensitive matter were to be discussed.

Lawmaker Samea Khogyani while criticising the summoning of security officials said lawmakers disclosed everything to the media on the Saturday evening. She asked the members to understand sensitive matters.

Lawmaker Abdul Rahman Rahmani said the Saturday session was not different than the open door sessions of the house.

“When an agreement was about to be linked with Pakistaninfo-icon its copies were made available on television screens and opinion holders discussed them on TV shows.”

The Talibaninfo-icon and Daesh insurgency was not underway in the space but on Afghanistaninfo-icon land and everyone know that the insurgency was going on in the districts of Afghanistan, said Rahmani.

In response to Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for the Ministry of Defence, Rahmani said why the individuals who brought Humvee vehicles inside police headquarters have been not named. “Are they your masters?” he questioned.

Waziri had earlier said some individuals drove Humvee military vehicles into police headquarters and exploded them.

Lawmaker Shekaba Hashami said no talk of security officials uttered in the Saturday session remained secret. She said security officials tried to keep public unaware of their situation. In fact, they had nothing to say, she remarked.
