On March 23, 2020, at the next meeting of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan, a number of deputies raised the issue of changing the boundaries of Hazorasp district within the Khorezm region and establishing Tuproqkala district based on this. Based on this, they showed the orders of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev during his visit to the Khorezm region on March 13–14, 2020, and the orders of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan to create social and household amenities for the population 2. Some deputies emphasized that the creation of a new district will have a positive effect on the development of agriculture, especially livestock breeding, on the socio-economic development of the region, and on ensuring the employment of the population 2 ).
