On April 3, Deputy Prime Minister of Azerbaijan Republic, Chairman of the State Committee on Deals of Refugees and IDPs Ali Hasanov inspected the construction process in settlement built for IDPs in the liberated Jojug Marjanli village of Jabrail region. In accordance with the Order of the President of Azerbaijan Republic, the restoration works were started in Jojug Marjanli village. Firstly, 4 million manats were allocated from the Reserve Fund of the President for the construction of 50 private houses, school building and relevant infrastructure and by the other Order 4,3 million manats were allocated for the construction of the road to Jojug Marjanli village. Upon the relevant orders of the President, master-plan of a new settlement consisting of 200 houses in Jojug Marjanli village was developed. Schools, health care and cultural centres will be constructed in the settlement, too. Specifications on utilities, natural gas, power and water line to be installed in the village were also considered. Demining operations were launched by Azerbaijan Republic National Agency for Mine Action. Firstly, the area of 50 houses and a school building was fully cleaned. During the inspection of construction area in Jojug Marjanli village, it was noted that 50 houses and a school building in the villages are currently under construction. About 30 vehicles and more than 145 workers were involved in the construction works. 14 houses have already been covered with reinforced concrete ceilings. And masonry works are carried out in the other houses and plaster works and instalment of water lines are implemented in the basement of 96-seat school building. Masonry works of 40 houses will be completed by the end of the week.
Instalment of gas and power lines has already been completed. Indoor gas lines will be installed on recent days. Indoor power lines will be installed after the houses are roofed and provided with counters.
The construction of 50 houses and a school building, and a full installation of gas and power lines will be completed until the end of May. 20 out of 50 houses constructed in the first stage are two-room, 25 three-room, 5 four-room.
It was noted that 100 more houses, cultural and educational facilities, kindergarten, health care centre and other social facilities will be constructed in the second stage of restoration process in the area. It is planned to construct one more school building in the village, too.
Based on the instructions of the President, a mosque similar to Shusha mosque is under construction. 50 acres of area was allocated for this purpose. When Deputy Prime Minister Ali Hasanov inspected the construction of mosque building, it was stated that the construction works were started on March 22. The height of minarets of the mosque where 22 people work will be 27 meters. A ceremonial hall will be built here and all the conditions will be created for religious worship. The mosque is planned to be built and put into commission within 5 months. However, the builders plan to complete the work earlier. Construction works in Jojug Marjanli once again confirm that villagers will be able to easily move their homes in the near future. Although 50 houses were constructed in Jojug Marjanli village in the first stage, about 200 families applied to return to their native lands just a few days after the President signed an Order. Of course, not everyone in the initial stage will be able to move to the village. The preference will be given to families who are young and extended and can engage in agriculture. The houses will be built for the other families in the next stage. Relevant places were defined and design works were carried accordingly.
