👉 Fridon Injia comes out with an initiative to give 500 GEL assistance to those families in rural areas who will have a child in 2023
🔹 For whom are large infrastructural projects being carried out, while the villages of Georgia are empty, and up to 1 million citizens of Georgia, including students and able-bodied population, are displaced abroad.
🔹 Chairman of the political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia announced this at the plenary session of the Parliament and expressed the initiative to provide 500 GEL assistance to families in rural areas who will have a child in 2023.
🔹 “The entire mass media and today the parliament are talking, as I think, about secondary issues: the status of self-confessed candidacy, 12-point demands; Who will be the public defender and how to agree on the nomination of the public defender, if we cannot agree, this will be the next topic of conversation; Who will be the chairman of “National Movement”; We are talking about the war between the big countries that is raging in Europe and around the world; We are talking about de-oligarchization and we want to somehow turn one philanthropist out of the country, instead of attracting wealthy people. At this time, what does Georgia represent today? With a population of about 3,700,000, up to 1 million people, including students and job seekers, are displaced from their homeland, and no one knows if they will return. According to the data of 2021, deaths exceed births by 15,000 – 60,000 people died,” said Fridon Injia.
🔹 As the deputy noted, the villages of Georgia are devoid of young people, able-bodied population, while large infrastructural projects are being implemented here.
🔹 “We build infrastructure, roads, gas, electricity, water… for whom are we doing this if we don’t have a population? I believe that the most important thing today is to stabilize the population in rural areas, increase and promote the birth rate, as well as the return of citizens to Georgia. Otherwise, this country will find itself in the worst situation tomorrow”, said Fridon Injia.
🔹 According to him, a family needs about 500 GEL to raise one child in rural areas.
🔹 “Let’s make 2023 the year of increasing the birth rate, let’s help those families where a child will be born in 2023 with 500 GEL”, said Fridon Injia.
