Ashraf Ghani, the President of Afghanistan, fled the war-torn country after the withdrawal of the Taliban. Ghani reached the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe, via a particular Russian plane from the capital Kabul. But the Tajikistan government did not allow them to land. After this, the Afghan President turned to the Gulf. Ashraf Ghani arrived in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with 51 people, including his family. The UAE government has confirmed his presence in the country and said that he had been given asylum on humanitarian grounds.
Ashraf Ghani Ran Away with Rs 1250 Crore
Along with Ashraf Ghani, his entire family, Afghanistan’s NSA Mohib and Afghanistan team’s star cricketer Mohammad Nabi have also reached UAE. It is reported that Ghani’s family members include his wife Rula F Saddah Ghani, his daughter Maryam and son Tariq Ghani. It has been learned that a total of 51 people reached UAE by particular aircraft. At the same time, there are allegations against Ghani that he has run away with him with $ 169 million (about Rs 1250 crore). Ghani had already said that he was in danger for his life since the return of the Taliban to power.
Ashraf Ghani told why he left the country?
Meanwhile, Ghani posted a video on his Facebook page late Wednesday night, confirming that he is in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Ashraf Ghani defended his decision to leave Kabul and flee. He said that this was the only way to stop the bloodshed. At the same time, the Afghan President also indirectly tried to dismiss the allegations of Afghanistan’s ambassador to Tajikistan that he stole $ 169 million from the treasury.
Ghani had fled the country on Sunday.
Ghani claimed that he had to leave Afghanistan in a pair of traditional clothes and sandals that he was wearing. Ghani said these days, allegations have been made that money was taken, but these allegations are entirely baseless. In his message, the Afghan president thanked the Afghan security forces but said the Taliban took power due to a “failure of the peace process”. Ghani left Afghanistan on Sunday after the Taliban entered Kabul.
