Not Merely Identification, But Also Elimination
The Uzbek parliamentarians have completed their latest trip to the regions, where they studied the situation on the ground, examined the pressing issues, got familiar with the life of the locals.
As deputies and senators note, it is important not only to identify shortcomings, but also provide practical assistance in their elimination.
Among the issues that citizens most often raised in front of people’s representatives were poor quality of utility services, underdeveloped infrastructure, employment problems.
Thus, the building of a cultural center in the village of Zarangari, Gijduvan district of the Bukhara region, has been in a deplorable condition for many years. Previously, it was considered an adornment of the local community, where people could relax, spend their time freely. Now this building is falling apart. At a meeting with lawmakers, the businessman Farhod Karimov suggested building a new, modern one in place of the old edifice. The entrepreneur intends to open a private preschool institution for 100 beds, which will create additional conveniences for the local population. The national legislators will provide him with practical assistance in the implementation of the project.
Particular attention during this trip is paid to the situation in schools, pre-school educational institutions, hospitals, rural medical stations, mahallas. In particular, the shortcomings in the heating system of school No. 26 in this district were removed only after the intervention of deputies and senators. With the assistance of the gas district, they stretched an additional 70 meters of pipes, which allowed the return of heat to the classes. At the initiative of parliamentarians, the possibility of building a new building of this educational institution is now being studied in detail.
In Uchkuduk district of Navoi region, members of the legislature held meetings with residents of mahallas - visited hundreds of families, listened to their appeals. According to the member of the Legislative Chamber Zafar Sultonov, unemployment remains an urgent issue for this region, especially among young people. There is no significant progress in supporting the entrepreneurial initiatives of the population. Uchkuduk is rich in raw materials, but despite this, the output of finished products is low. To find out the reasons for this situation, the parliamentarians met with local businessmen who are engaged in salt mines. They are given recommendations on the primary processing of products, its iodization and packaging. Many residents are interested in this business. Together with financial institutions, a special program will be developed, the implementation of which will help to solve the issue of employment.
A group of deputies who visited the Khanka district of the Khorezm region got acquainted with the activity of preschool institutions. They drew attention to the fact that most of the 30 kindergartens in the district need major repairs, high-quality food products are not delivered to the required level, the sanitary rules in canteens are not fully observed, and there is a shortage of necessary medicines.
The parliamentarians carried out a critical analysis of the existing problems, prepared recommendations for the heads of relevant organizations, as well as proposals for the socio-economic development program of the district on the creation of necessary conditions in preschool institutions.
The results of the visit of deputies and senators will be analyzed and discussed in detail at the sessions of the district council of people’s deputies.
