ASHGABAT, April 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov has dismissed a government minister whose son was involved in a road accident row. A man who has failed to bring up one’s child properly is not worthy to have a government seat, Berdymuhamedov said, as he dismissed Energy and Industry Minister Yarmuhamet Orazgulyiev, whose son had been found responsible for a road accident, alongside several other students. A group of young people, including the minister’s son, staged a night-time street race which that resulted in casualties. One person died and several others were injured.
The affair was discussed at a meeting of the Cabinet on Friday.
“Regrettably, some officials fail to pay proper attention to the upbringing of their children, and this causes misfortunes,” Berdymuhamedov said after hearing a report by the Interior Ministry. “Polytechnic Institute students have committed a road accident with grave effects. Let me warn all of you. Should any children of senior officials commit this sort of outrage, their parents will face the most stringent measures. An official who has failed to bring up one’s offspring properly can have no place in the government,” Berdymuhamedov said.
He instructed the deputy prime ministers to do the necessary briefing for all heads of ministries and industrial agencies.
Also, Berdymuhamedov dismissed the rector of the Polytechnic Institute, Khydyr Saparlyiev “for gross shortcomings in work.”
Education Minister Gulshat Mammedova and her deputy Guldymurat Djimagulyiev were strongly disciplined “for shortcomings in education and morality promotion and for weak control of discipline among students.”
