President Ashraf Ghani had left Kabul for Balkh province on July 13-2021 and is said he would meet provincial civil and military officials.
It was reported that no journalist was allowed to cover the President’s visit.
Journalists in Balkh province stated that government” writes news for us” instate of inviting them to cover the event.
Nai believes that president should be accountable for people, and this will happen when journalists can do their professional work face to face with the president.
Meanwhile, people have the right to know, why and what for president’s trip to Balkh province was in these sensitive conditions.
Nai thinks the not allowing local media and journalists who are in critical and war conditions will caused hundreds of questions unanswered and increases on government.
