3. Biodata:
Muhammad Hashim Hussainkhel was appointed as mayor of Pul-i-Alam the Province Capital of Logar Province during the early years of Hamid Karzai's presidency and still ‎holds the post. ‎ Background: He is the only such ‎official in Afghanistan who works at home instead of attending his office ‎‎ a practice widely considered by the dwellers as a major cause of no ‎progress in addressing public complaints. Muhammad Hashim, admitted that ‎he was not coming to his office. Security problems stop me from openly ‎coming out in the market area, he argued. He added that a rush of people ‎would be there if he comes to his office (20100213). However, Logar Deputy Governor Shujauddin said security situation was not that ‎much bad to be an excuse for government officials not to attend their ‎offices.
