When the Taliban took control of Kabul, President Ashraf Ghani also fled, on which he is being severely criticized. I can’t forgive you for making it, the government in the country came to an end so fast that it was very difficult to understand.
On a social media statement, Ajmal Ahmadi, head of the central bank, commented that he attended the meeting on a regular basis. In the morning, the Taliban took control of Ghazni. By the time I left for home, other provinces, including Herat, Kandahar and Badghis, were under Taliban control. Under control
1/The collapse of the Government in Afghanistan this past week was so swift and complete – it was disorienting and difficult to comprehend.

Most of the rural areas had fallen to the Taliban several months ago, but the Taliban first took control of the first provincial capital nine days ago. gone.
Ajmal Ahmadi said that rumors were active that the Taliban had been ordered “from above” not to resist, it is difficult to believe all this, but it is doubtful why the ANSF vacated the posts so quickly. There was something that was hidden, we were told on the phone on Friday that the shipment of dollars would not be received due to the deteriorating security situation.
The central bank issued less currency in the market on Saturday, which further increased the unrest. In its meetings on Saturday, it tried to appease the banks and money changers. ۔
Ajmal Ahmadi said that my family said that almost all the government figures have left the country and I am just a fool left. I got upset and bought tickets for Monday as a precaution. Leaving, it was sad to leave the employees like this but still I reached the airport where other personalities were also present.
The head of the central bank said that the second vice president Danish was also leaving the country for Qatar, ministers and other personalities were waiting for the flights of private airlines, but the flights were canceled, I managed to book the flight of another private airline. But then the throne fell and the president left the country, the lack of planning from the Afghan leadership seemed very disappointing, I contacted the presidential palace and asked what the plan was to leave, but after 7 years of service I got only silence in response. ۔
On the other hand, Afghan journalist Nazira Karimi is also worried. During the briefing of Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby, the question was asked, where is Afghan President Ashraf Ghani now? They should answer to the Afghan people. Twenty years ago they separated from the Taliban. Now we are back to the same place. Afghan women are worried about the arrival of the Taliban, to which John Kirby refused to respond.
