In the issue of ensuring the inviolability of private property, each manager is obliged to strictly observe and strictly comply with the requirements laid down in normative-legal acts. First of all, they should be guided by the Article 53 of the Constitution – our Basic Law, which determines that “the state shall guarantee freedom of economic activity, entrepreneurship and labour with due regard for the priority of consumers’ rights, as well as equality and legal protection of all forms of ownership”, as well as Article 167 of the Civil Code “Private and public forms of ownership are recognized in the Republic of Uzbekistan” and Article 5 of the Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan “On property in the Republic of Uzbekistan” – “Private property, along with other forms of ownership, is inviolable and protected by the state. The owner may be deprived of it only in cases and in the manner prescribed by law”.
Along with this, it is necessary that the life principle “People should live well not tomorrow, but today” became the main guide to action in activities of each leader and each responsible organization.
Strict deputy control will be established over compliance with the requirements for the preparation of written agreements on the consent of owners to demolish real estate and compensation for damage resulting from the seizure of land by owners.
Deputies of the party at all levels, regional organizations of the party will ensure active participation of business entities in discussion of the draft law to be developed to strengthen the liability of officials for damage caused as a result of illegal seizure of land by owners and based on their opinions and judgments, concrete proposals will be developed.
The party’s deputy groups in local councils of people’s deputies and deputies will take measures on increasing the efficiency of public hearings and the results of deputy requests for each case of violation of property rights of owners.
Active participation of party deputies of all levels in the regional working groups and the republican coordination working group, which will describe the amount of damage caused to citizens and business entities in connection with the seizure of land, will be ensured.
A helpline will operate on issues of illegal demolition of buildings and structures, the seizure of land of citizens and entrepreneurs in the party’s regional, district and city kengashes.
