Ghulamullah Nuristani, rejected the claim as exaggerated, admitting some policemen had sold their guns due to frustration over inordinate delays in salary payments.
“There are some cases of policemen selling their guns — not as many as claimed,” Nuristani said, explaining a number of police vehicles had been damaged during battles and road accidents. Qayyum said the police headquarters in Nuristan had been allotted five acres of land, but offices were built on two acres and the rest of the land was grabbed by officials. He did not name anyone.
“My claim can earn me many enemies, but I would speak the truth, come what may,” the senator remarked, accusing the Nuristan governor of failing to execute a single development project since his appointment office six and a half years back.

Qayyum said countless vacancies in public sector departments remained unfilled due to the governor’s inefficiency.(20130901)
