3. Instead of being developed, Tanintharyi Division has become unstable due to the inhumane actions of the terrorist military leaders

At the fourth fundraising event, “Hands in Hands Together for Tanintharyi’s Victory,” held on February 26, Union Minister of International Cooperation Dr. Sasa said the following regarding the Tanintharyi:

“Tanintharyi is like California in the United States; everything has already been created. Instead of being developed like that, due to the inhumanity of Myanmar’s terrorist military leaders, Tanintharyi was not given the opportunity it was able to receive and has reached this situation today.”

Subsequently, Union Minister of Communications, Information and Technology U Htin Linn Aung also said:

“This region needs to be liberated now. For this liberation, we NUG support as much as we can, and the public has also supported it by organising fund-raising events like this. Now that there is another fundraising event, we must promote this region more. We must be able to provide support, and if we can do this, the revolutionary forces will have the chance to gather more weapons quickly.”

Tanintheryi Region is a significant area since it borders Thailand to the east and south, the Andaman Sea to the west, and it can carry commodities by sea trade, which can generate a lot of tax revenue.
