Guys, here’s a list of projects in Afghanistan that India is undertaking for bettering the lives of the Afghans. In contrast I wonder what Pakistan has done to help improve the quality of life for the ordinary Afghan? The $2 billion Indian assistance to Afghanistan resulted in…. 1. Political leverage of India over Pakistan in Afghanistan. 2. India is in the heart of every Afghan today be it Pashtuns, Tajiks, Hazaras etc.. because their projects were based on 'zero' discrimination and were equally distributed among Afghans. 3, Construction of hospitals and establishment of tele-medicine centers in Afghanistan through which 400,000 patients are availing from those services annually including Taliban. 4, Provided 24 hours electricity to over 11 provinces. 5, Providing higher education for over 12,000 Afghan students at bachelor and masters level. 6, Empowering women by giving them micro finance opportunities. 7, Construction of irrigation systems and small dams. 8, Construction of a big irrigation dam in western Afghanistan. 9, Provided capacity building programs to 6000 civil servants. 10, Advised Afghanistan on various policy makings such as national IT policy, e-government policy, agriculture policy, irrigation policy, financial policies etc.. 11, Constructed 100s of primary, secondary and high schools all over Afghanistan. 12, Constructed a huge building for the parliament of Afghanistan. 13, Actively training and equipping Afghan security forces. 14, Supply of wheat and other food items. 15, Construction of highways and roads. 16, Accommodation of Chabahar port for Afghan traders. 17, Construction of cold storage facilities in Bamyam, Kandahar and other provinces. 18, Establishing Agricultural university and a mining school. 19, Gifting over 800 buses and mini-buses to our urban transportation sector and a good amount of ambulances to the ministry of public health. 20, Restoration of telecommunication infrastructure in 11 provinces. 21, Expansion of media activities to all 34 provinces. 22, Implementing 84 small projects of agriculture, rural development, education, health, vocational training, and solar energy which have a direct, immediate and visible impact on community life in vulnerable border areas. 23, Established India-Afghanistan Vocational Training Center for Afghan youth in carpentry, plumbing, welding, masonry and tailoring executed by the Confederation of Indian Industries. 24, Established Women's Vocational Training Center in garment making, nursery plantation, food processing and marketing, executed by the well-known Indian NGO SEWA (Self-Employed Women’s Association). 25, Capacity building programmes for all government and private sectors in the fields of diplomacy, media and information, civil aviation, agricultural research and education, health care and medicinal science, tourism, education, standardisation, rural development, public administration, electoral management and administration, and local governance. 26, Over 100 tube wells were dug in over 8 provinces. 29, Three Airbus aircraft were donated to Ariana Airlines with spare parts. 30, India provides Afghanistan duty-free access to the import of dried figs, mulberries, pistachio, roasted pine nuts, fresh melons, asafoetida, lapis lazuli, ruby and emeralds.

Turquoise Mountain Foundation proposal for restoration of the House of Screens (Murad Khane in old Kabul city) 97.9% of these SDPs have been or are being implemented in Pashtun provinces, so you know what that means to Pakistan. But what has Pakistan given to Afghanistan? Taliban and terror, for their one track aim of installing a Talib led government in Kabul to further their narrow interests of establishing the so called strategic depth in Afghanistan against India. As a result 95% Afghans hate Pakistan. Pakistan's grand design of making Afghanistan a Pakistani 'protectorate' has literally gone up in smoke.
