President Kh.Battulga receives citizen representativesPolitics
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. President of Mongolia Kh.Battulga received the citizens who made a request at the Citizens’ Hall yesterday on November 7.
From business owners of car services and those who are participating in the “car protest” to citizens whose request wasn’t approved, despite requesting a comparatively small amount of loan from the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Fund (SME), over 100 citizens attended the meeting to voice their opinions.
For instance, the citizens who are participating in the protest stated that they are making a protest with their cars everyday between 7 am to 11 am from November 5 to 10 against price increase of petrol and consumer goods and presented their request to President Kh.Battulga to pay attention to the increase of petrol price, and advise the government in taking measures.
As for the citizens who requested a loan from the SME, said that despite not being affiliated with any political parties, they have decided to unite to make their voices heard, upon learning about the large amount of loan certain power holders were able to get. They expressed their view of the power holders taking large amount of loans as “stealing” the future, and requested the president to hold them accountable for their actions.
