“There are absolutely no reports about preventing the staff of budget-funded organizations from the cotton-picking campaign this year”, said Sh. “The head of our department said: ‘What you heard is nonsense. Who will pick cotton? Just prepare for the cotton-picking campaign!’ There were delays in paying our salaries. Now we have been told that in connection with our departure for the cotton-picking campaign the salaries will be transferred to our money cards. This is done because we will have to pay for replacement Notice at the Andijan Medical Institute workers ourselves.”
