On the governmental side, the governor of Najaf - Majid Al-Waeli - MP - Hamid Al-Shiblawi - and MP - Thanaa Al-Zajrawi - in his library regarding the project of implementing the gates of Najaf and their refusal to decide to implement the southern entrance in the Al-Radawiya area (Al-Qayesh), where the governor stated several reasons for moving the gate to the Al-Radawiya area. Including the presence of privately owned land on the one hand and the other, the presence of a water channel that hinders work in that area, in addition to the fact that the site is within the administrative boundaries of Al-Diwaniyah Governorate.
Despite the reasons clarified by the government, the demonstrators were not convinced by these justifications, so the demonstration continued for the next day when thousands of people from southern Najaf gathered. Many clans showed solidarity with this demonstration, the most important of which are the Al-Fatla clan and the Al-Fayada clan. Al-Jubouri and the (Al Jayash) clan, as well as all the activists of Najaf Governorate.
One of the demonstrators - stated to the monitoring team that a sum of money and a budget had been allocated for this gate within the specific sites for its construction, after which there would be a regular street with lighting for afforestation sidewalks. Al-Qayesh's project will lead to marginalization of the southern regions and deprive us of services for this project.
After our sit-in for several hours and in the presence of a large crowd and protest against this decision, the protesters cut off the primary control, and for the demonstration to continue, a delegation arrived from the governor to request a meeting to address the matter and reach a conclusion. To be satisfactory to both parties, by discussing the matter and working on it in the future. Until the report was written, nothing was issued by the government regarding the gate's transfer of the borders. Accordingly, one of the demonstrators stated that if the governor does not abide by his promises to look into the matter, we will have a final word to announce later.
