Rumors have been spread by some key political figures in Afghanistan that there are certain people on the government side who are actually working for others.
Most of these figures referred the ‘insiders’ as the ‘fifth pillar of the government’. They have been calling on government to remove the fifth pillar.
But President Ghani made it clear during a press conference on Thursday evening that without any proof it would resemble a desert court.
He pointed to those spreading such rumors to present proof. He made a call “do not to lead the country towards desert courts”, saying that trust goes away in desert courts.
The issue was even brought up in Parliament and some other major gatherings where concern was raised that the ‘fifth pillar’ is involved in recent surge of insecurity in the country.
