UFA, 5 July 2017. /Bashinform News Agency/.
The Head of Bashkortostan, Rustem Khamitov, met with members of the Public Chamber RB of the fifth convocation. Before that, the first (organizational) meeting of the Chamber took place, at which the leadership of the Public Chamber RB was elected.
"You represent a wide variety of our society development, the most different public organizations. Virtually the whole life of society is represented through you in the Public Chamber. And it should be like this. There are no any distortions in this or that direction. It seems to me that the current composition is balanced and reflects all areas of activity. We are working not for our own well-being, we are working to the benefit of people", Rustem Khamitov noted.
The meeting discussed issues of demography and support for the family institution, attraction of health care workers to rural areas, expansion of social services transferred to the non-state sector, coordination of patriotic education, development of children's television in the national language, and support of talented school graduates.
"Strictly speaking, we are at the point of transition from one formation to another. We are still looking for ways, options for the development of events. We understand that the issues of justice, including material compensation for the results of work, are not sufficiently addressed. We see that wages are still very low, and a significant part of our society lives paycheck to paycheck. There are many more unresolved issues with housing, jobs, opportunities for promotion. Social elevators are still not working as we would like them to work", said Rustem Khamitov. "All these issues are open to discussion. There is no ban on complex topics. Moreover, I believe that we ourselves should see these sore points. Do not be shy or afraid to talk about it, curry favour to the authorities. On the contrary, you should talk about real situation, maybe even bring up these issues for public discussion".
