Astana. October 9. KazTAG - Majilis deputies are outraged by significant cut in water supply financing.
“According to the budget program entitled Construction and reconstruction of water supply systems and hydraulic structures, there is significant reduction in funding from 19.4 billion tenge to 10.1 billion tenge. No changes had been planned in the budget updates. The funding has been cut in almost all the areas and numerous facilities, ” said Sergey Simonov, Majilis deputy.
