Spring Revolution Local News – Apr 27 (Evening)

Summary of News

1. The Union Prime Minister urges the government to be cautious and act quickly to solve the issues on the ground since there is a possibility that the forces on the ground themselves will use weapons to resolve them

Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn Khaing Thann remarked the following at the Cabinet Meeting (16/2023) of the National Unity Government:

“The kind of news that people are afraid of various armed groups in some places is quite disappointing. Therefore, it is up to us as officials to work together to resolve issues before they get to this point. In certain cases where they rely on us and complain, but we aren’t able to resolve things satisfactorily for several months, there is a possibility that they won’t be able to take it anymore and will vent on the media or, worse yet, resort to using weapons to resolve the issue on their own.”

The Union Prime Minister further exhorted the government, saying that while it must work hard in the resistance war to eradicate the terrorist military council, it should also work hard to provide public services since it is the government that the people elected and trusted.

Later, Dr. Zaw Wai Soe, Union Minister for Education and Health of the National Unity Government (NUG), said:

“Now there are many areas that have become our controlled areas, and self-operating mechanisms are being implemented by CDMers; hence, in accordance with the Federal Principles, self-determination laws and administrations must be closest to the ground and they must be prioritized. The CDMers, who will mainly operate the mechanisms, must carefully study and apply the Federal Principles”

Then, Dr. Khin Soe Soe Kyi, chairman of the CRPH Public Affairs Committee, clarified that the objective of the meeting is for CDMers to have a comprehensive understanding of the work of the Public Affairs Committee and the CDM Success Committee, and she explained the Public Affairs Committee’s activities and CDM support.

“From January 2023 until today, the allied forces involving PDF units have carried out 44 camp capture battles, 6 attacks on enemy air bases, 9 attacks on enemy weapon industries, and 11 attacks on enemy headquarters. The revolution is already advancing at a high speed. Without relenting, the populace is resisting the military dictator’s inhumane cruelties. EOD programs have been a particularly important force in contributing to those revolutionary strengths. We bow respectfully to each and every one of the revolutionary people who contributed to the EDO programs.”

The EOD also called on the people to continue their support by purchasing the EOD’s current project, the Spring Inya Condominium Project, to fill up the revolutionary funds.
