MINSK, 25 September (BelTA) – When approving the appointment of new local government officials, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko advised them to be more demanding with their subordinates, BelTA has learned.
The head of state recalled that a number of tasks were set at the national seminar-meeting on the development of livestock industry a few days ago. Moreover, many of the future district government chiefs were present at this event. “You know and understand the tasks that were set for livestock farming. The only thing I ask of you is not to be lenient and permissive. Those of you who worked in agriculture, and to a lesser extent others, know what I am talking about. People will come to you and say that this or that is impossible,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
“But, as I often say, we are not at war. We do what we have always done in peacetime and what we know how to do. Make your subordinates do this,” the head of state demanded.
The president noted that there are enough issues in all regions, but three regions need increased attention: “Vitebsk Oblast and Gomel Oblast, Mogilev Oblast – there should be iron control there.”
