Residents drove a flock of sheep to the building of the khokimiyat in Nurabad district
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Residents of the mahalla in Nurabad district of Samarkand region drove almost 1,500 sheep to the building of the regional khokimiyat. They were dissatisfied with raising more than 4,000 head of cattle on the land allocated for sheep breeding.
The Department of Internal Affairs of the Samarkand region commented on the video that appeared on social networks with a flock of sheep near the khokimiyat of Nurabad district. The Department reported that the incident took place on 6 April at approximately 16:00.
According to the department, the Committee for the Development of Sericulture and Karakul Breeding has allocated 151 thousand hectares of land to Samarkand Korakul cluster LLC, and SP LUXE JV LLC - more than 197.2 thousand hectares.
After that, an agreement was concluded between the cluster and the Sohibkor Khozhiakbar farm on the lease of 834 hectares of land for a period of 49 years. The contract specified the breeding of 1,450 heads of small ruminants (sheep), but in fact, the head of the farms also kept more than 4,000 heads of cattle on this territory.
This led to the discontent of the residents of the Kilichli makhalla, who drove 1,450 sheep belonging to the cluster to the center of the district.
After that, the khokim of the district and the head of the district police department held a meeting with the head of SP LUXE and other citizens, as a result of which the agreement between the JV and the farm was canceled.
In addition, in order to prevent such situations, an agreement was reached on the allocation of cluster lands, first of all, to residents of makhallas for breeding livestock by organizing an LLC.
