Amrullah Saleh slams Taliban after its Acting PM tells Afghans to 'beg God' for food

Amrullah Saleh slams Taliban after its Acting PM tells Afghans to 'beg God' for food

Kabul, Nov 28 (UNI) Former Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh on Sunday slammed the Taliban regime in Afghanistan after the Acting Prime Minister Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund in his first address to the nation said the “Taliban have not promised to feed the nation and that people must ‘beg God’ for food”.
“Ask God to solve the issue of hunger & poverty. We didn't promise economic prosperity". A key point in the audio speech, rehearsed for three months, by the Pakistani installed chief minister of Afghanistan. His title is wrongly translated PM. رییس الوزرا means Chief Minister not PM,” Saleh said in a tweet.
Saleh, who is now living abroad after the resistance in Panjshir province was defeated in early September by the Taliban regime with the reported help of Pakistan’s ISI agency, also said that the Pakistani army headquarters had taught the Taliban how to make IEDs, and used the Islamist militia as a demolition force.
But now with Afghanistan conquered by the Taliban the Pakistan regime is “puzzled” on how to sustain the very force it has created, and how to ”monetize" Afghanistan The “previous buyers”, meaning the US-led western forces, are reluctant to jump in after burning their fingers, while the “new buyers”, meaning the Chinese who have promised the Taliban they will pump in billions into Afghanistan, are not too sure about the future prospects.

“Rawalpindi had taught them well in IED making, used them as a demolishing force and is now puzzled how to sustain them. Since 1978 Afghanistan has always been a rewarding project for GHQ (Pakistan army headquarters). First time they are struggling to monetize it. Previous buyers are reluctant and new buyers aren't sure,” he posted.
