Karzai government is unable to deliver basic services

By Hanan Habibzai 

Hamid Karzai's government is unable to deliver basic services ,such as security,food and shelters. Intangibility is growing by every day and Widespread concerns increasingly reflect hopelessness and shed nervousness for public safety.
Increasing corruption in Afghanistan is contribuitng to increased porverty and a serious neglect of human rights in the country. 
The majority of Afghans live in poverty despite the fact that some $35bn (£23bn) of aid was poured into the country between 2002 and 2009.
The world community is focusing too much on military efforts and too little on long-term development. The office of the UN human rights commissioner highlighted the concerns in its report March this year.
widespread corruption further limits access to services for a large proportion of the population.blaming Afghan officials of advancing their own interests at the expense of the general public. Farther more Afghan population remained careless.
The United nation reported  that Afghanistan is still suffering the second highest maternal mortality rate in the world and the third highest rate of child mortality.
Only 23% of the population have access to safe drinking water and only 24% above the age of 15 can read and write.
'' And basically the main conclusion is that the abuse of power is the key driver of poverty in Afghanistan, vested interests frequently shape the public agenda whether in relations to law, policy or the allocation of resources" A top UN official said.
In Afghanistan ,the law and order is severely abused by key officials, judicial system is deeply soiled in corruption and the criminal law is only practicable against poor people who don't have a connection with key officials either unable to pay huge bribes.Afghanistan is dominated by widespread injustice and human rights abuses.
