BEIJING/URUMQI, March 6 (Xinhua) -- Laqini was elected as a national lawmaker in 2018, the only Tajik NPC deputy at that time. He made a string of suggestions during the past annual sessions to improve local people's wellbeing.

On Jan. 4, while taking part in a training course at a college in southern Xinjiang's Kashgar city, he happened to see a boy fall through the ice on a frozen lake. Laqini ran to the boy and saved him from drowning but could not escape the freezing water himself.

He died a heroic death, leaving a lasting legacy as a committed border patrolman, national lawmaker, and Communist Party of China (CPC) member.

Some deputies bring his suggestions to this year's "two sessions" to accomplish his unfulfilled wishes.
