The heads of the National Guard of Jizzakh and Surkhandarya regions will also leave their jobs.
I. Ibragimov, the first deputy commander of the National Guard in charge of public safety, was dismissed from his position, the presidential press service reported.
At the meeting in Fergana region, the President focused on the issues of ensuring peace in public places.
The National Guard was given additional powers, and the maintenance of public order in parks, boulevards and markets was entrusted to this structure.
