Sources privy of the development said Adib distanced himself from Abdullah due to the internal political differences, mainly having links over the title of the Marshal of Afghanistan.
The sources further added that Adib decided to distance himself from Abdullah’s team as he opposed with the decision to confer the title of Marshal of Afghanistan to Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum.
Adib posted a short statement online on Monday, indirectly criticizing Abdullah for remaining short to respect an ‘age-old’ friendship, brotherhood and loyalty, accusing him (Abdullah) of considering political concession against historical values of ‘Jihad and Resistance’.
Qasim Fahim, the former vice president of Afghanistan, who died of an illness in 2014, was conferred with the title of Marshal of Afghanistan following the fall of Taliban regime.
This comes as reports emerged earlier suggesting a crack in electoral team of Abdullah Abdullah, having links with the political differences.
The reports emerged amid ongoing efforts to end the political stalemate which intensified following the controversial conduct and announcement of presidential elections.
On the other hand, Abdullah announced last week that his team has reached to an agreement in principle to end the ongoing political tensions with President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.
