The Indian daily finds Lola Cecchinel’s analysis for AAN about Kunduz “very thoughtful”:

In large swathes of the country, this means government has all but vanished. In a thoughtful analysis written this month, Afghan Analysts Network researcher Lola Cecchinel wrote that the government’s influence in the Kunduz districts of Dasht-e Archi and Chahrdara had all but vanished, with civil servants abandoning their positions and retreating to areas with substantial police concentrations. In their place, Taliban had set up full fledged parallel administrations.
