The Acting President said he believed the arms need would be resolved, although it would take some time

The Acting President said, “The problem is that so far no country has provided us with weapons. We have been trying to install them in our own way. When the NUG was not able to collect taxes officially, we took the lead in installing as much as possible with donations from the people, so it took some time. However, the spirit of the people is at the highest degree now, and we will get the supplies. I believe it will work out.”

The Ministry of Defense spends 80 percent of its budget on weapons.

At present, 257 battalions of the People’s Defense Force and Brotherhood, and 250 Township People’s Defense Force have been established.

There are 401 local defense forces (LDFs) and youth urban guerrilla groups, 60% of which are affiliated with the Ministry of Defense (NUG).

It is so bad to the level that thousands of houses have been set on fire.”

A person in charge of the Mindat People’s Administration said that the People’s Administration opened up to 180 middle schools for interim education in Mindat Township, Chin State, and he urged people not to enroll in schools run by the Military Council.

Ko Raman from Mindat People’s Administration said that the military council has been accepting enrollment in their schools since 266 May and has been urging children to attend school in Mindat. The military council had planned to open more than 800 schools in Chin state in the 2021 academic year, but was unable to do so due to the military situation.

A CDM teacher in Kani said that the National Unity Government (NUG) has been trying to implement an interim education system since January 4. Since then, self-help schools have been occurring in many townships in Sagaing Division. The villagers provided some allowances for the teachers, but later the houses of the villagers themselves were burnt down and it became difficult for them to survive, leaving the teachers, who could not do other work other than teaching, struggling to make ends meet.

In Sagaing Division, village defense forces are on guard duty to ensure the safety of children when they go to school. Teachers say the children have been trained to run for their lives before the military councils enter. Most parents in the Northwest Military Region are trying to provide as much education as possible under NUG’s interim education system for their children while running.
