iNEWS says ParsToday reported recently that Tajikistan may establish a new province of Samanid by dividing the southwest province of Khatlon into two separate regions.

Currently, the news of the new province is reportedly being discussed on the Internet in full swing. According to netizens, Tajikistan will establish a new administrative unit in central Danghara on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the country’s independence.

It is reported that the area will include Kulob, Nurek, Roghun and Yovon districts.  However, the Tajikistan authorities have not yet responded to this remark.

“If the Tajik authorities decide to add a new province, it is better to divide Khatlon province into two regions, with Kulob and Kurgan Tyube (Bokhtar – Asia-Plus) as the centers,” Humanities researcher Umet Jahani said.

According to him, Kulob should become a regional center because the city has historical value and all capabilities will be developed.

The journalist Ahmadshoh Komilzoda said that the establishment of a new administrative unit can simplify the state management procedures and improve the quality of life of residents.

Experts emphasized that the president will issue some important measures before making such a decision.  Earlier, President Emomali Rahmon opened a new school, college, medical center and two factories in Danghara district.
