Afghan Lawmakers , Flee

As the forces of the extremist militant group Taliban steadily takes over the reins of Afghanistan, some big names have left the country - fleeing to safer locations when they still can. Multiple MPs have already landed in India. Reports from yesterday also showed that President Ashraf Ghani himself had fled the country. Post the US pull-out, the Taliban has been gaining ground on a dangerous magnitude, with many important cities having fallen under their grasp of power already. The Taliban's aggressive push seems to be casting a shadow on the freedom and future of the Afghan people as well as the geopolitical stability of the region.
