Last year, the Ministry of Village Care set aside 120 million dinars for the purchase of minibuses. So far, 18 such vehicles have been procured and the first minibus has arrived in the municipality of Kursumlija.

“This will mean a lot to people who are retired and who have a relative small pensions, who cannot afford a taxi to come from Kursumlija. That’s ten kilometers. It’s not much, but it will mean a lot for a minibus that will come and transport them once a day or during the week. In order for the locals to take something for life. We also have children who are going to school and who will start from the fifth to the eighth grade this year at the home school in Kursumlija. We already have a family of five where the parents already are they pay for the apartment for two children in Kursumlija. So it would mean a lot that those children have regular transportation to Kursumlija to school “, says Bojan Jovanović from MZ Konjuva.

The inhabitants of the village of Konjuva manage in different ways to get to Kursumlija, where they have scheduled examinations, the need to procure some basic livelihoods and the like. With this minibus, they will be able to greatly improve their life activities in these villages.

These are several different projects on the purchase of houses with a garden and the purchase of equipment and obtaining funds to increase the agricultural production of newly formed cooperatives in this area, “said the mayor of Kursumlija Carapic.

Minister Milan Krkobabic said that there are people who live in remote villages and that it is of great importance that transportation is organized from those villages to the center so that locals can receive the necessary adequate health and education services, but also engaged in sports activities. It is also very important to arrange rural roads in these municipalities.

“So the state of Serbia buys a vehicle, the local self-government finds a driver, registers the vehicle, technically maintains and pays for fuel.” In that way, we enable free transportation of people through this area. This is an example and we will try to draw good and bad sides from it. We’ll cover everything 44 municipalities the fourth group of development. In that way, we will solve the issue of transportation and movement of these people. Pensions are not high, you know well those who are engaged in agriculture, the estates are small and fragmented. So money does not flow here. And this is a marginal area. Our goals here are economic. This is an extremely large municipality with a great length. Towards Kosovo. And we absolutely must have a population here, “said Minister Milan Krkobabic.
