JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Civil societyinfo-icon activists and youth on Saturday railed against Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon member recent comments and Pakistaninfo-icon decision to fence some parts of the Durand Lineinfo-icon.

They asked the government to punish individuals who spoke against supreme national interest and demanded cancelation of Pedram’s Woelsi Jirgainfo-icon membership.

Abdul Qader Bahar, head of youth eastern council, said Duran Line was unofficial and unrecognised boarder line about which the Afghan nation could only decide.

He slammed parliament members and provincial council member for being silent and not speaking against Pakistan decision to fence parts of the Duran Line.

At the end the rally participants passed an eight-point resolution asking for removal of Pedram from Wolesi Jirg and strong action by the lawmakers against him.

Pedram earlier said that Durand Line was an official boarder between Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistan which sparked strong reaction from different individuals and groups.
