New Delhi :
After the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, people started starving. According to local media reports, the income of the people there has almost ended. While the prices in the market are skyrocketing. Citizens also have to make papads to meet basic needs. Noorzada, a resident of Kabul, said that due to the freezing of Afghanistan’s assets in the US, prices have increased in the local market. Earlier, the cost of one sack of flour (50 kg) was 1,200 afghani ($ 13), which has increased to 2,300 afghani. You can get an idea of the extent to which inflation is dominating.
Many other citizens, including Noorzada, told about civilians living in Afghanistan. It was told that the daily income of the people there has become negligible. Washington has frozen nearly $9.5 billion in assets of the Afghan central bank over allegations of the presence of terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and Islamic State in the war-torn country. Some of whom are even yearning to eat. People’s jobs have been completely destroyed. Along with this, a decree has been issued to women not to work. Due to which working women have also been imprisoned in their homes.
blame the america
Taliban interim government spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected the US charge, saying that Afghanistan’s soil would not be used against any country, including the US. Echoing Noorzada’s concerns, Kabul resident Nazir also blamed the US for the skyrocketing prices. He also said that Washington’s second-rate policy has led to economic chaos and increasing poverty in an already poor country. At the same time, the crisis has deepened after the Taliban regime came.
Nazir told that in the last months, I earned 1,500 Afghanis every day, but nowadays I hardly earn 400 Afghanis. Economic hardship is evident everywhere in conflict-torn Afghanistan, including the capital Kabul, as many residents of the capital city are selling their home appliances to survive. Some people even started selling their hard-built houses. So that the family can get bread for two times.
