Residents of Herat to help security forces to protect Salma Dam

A number of people including religious scholars and elders from Chesht district of the western Herat province called on provincial police chief yesterday and assured to support the security forces in protection of the Salma Dam.

Thanking the people for their support, the police chief said that the security forces won’t allow anyone to conduct subversive activities in the essential dam.

Salma Dam project was initiated during Daud Khan Kingdom at the first place, but was postponed due to the spark of a civil war in country.   The work on the project then re-started during Hamed Karzai government and was finally put to the use last month.

Salma Dam is supposed to lighten up Herat province and some other neighbouring provinces.
