Opposition MP proposes bill to grant privileges to border villagers

PanARMENIAN.Net - An opposition MP from the Armenian National Congress proposed a legislation to grant privileges to the population in the border villages of Armenia, Tert.am reported.

As Nikol Pashinyan said in his Facebook post, he came up with the idea after visits to several border communities and meetings with the local residents in July and in early August.

He particularly proposes 50% discounts for utility bills (electric power, natural gas, drinking and irrigation water), exemption from land and real property taxes, as well as provision of temporary shelters to those left homeless in the wake of the recent cross-border skirmishes.

Pashinyan further calls for ensuring the free treatment of those injured during the armed clashes and providing aid to the affected communities.
