  • Updates will be posted as it becomes available

Ali Khan is working well, but he brings Hazaras and appoints them to good positions. In his place we should find a capable Pashtun who would speak all languages and is a writer.

We should appoint the Pashtuns from Herat who don’t speak Pashtu and we should also appoint Tajiks and Uzbeks who work according to our wishes symbolically so that people would think that in the chief of staff office people of all ethnicities are working

  1. Secretary to the Chief of Staff Dawood Noorzai should be changed and in his place a Pashtun should be appointed who knows Pashtu, English and Farsi
  2. Two-three experts should be appointed to Qazi Delawar office and supporting Qazi Delawar to become the director of international affairs.

  10. We should tell Noorzai to attend every cabinet meeting and should increase his contacts with the president and those who are close to him like Malakzai, Ajmal Ghani and Roshan.
  11. We should work closely with those ministers who are favored by the president so that he would have a favorable view of us and would praise us.
  12. We should help Farahi.
