2. Deputy Minister Ngai Tam Maung Urges Cooperation Over Rivalry in the Revolution Against Dictators

On September 23, Deputy Minister Ngai Tam Maung emphasised in a Facebook post the importance of unity over rivalry in the revolution.

“In my opinion, it is crucial for the revolutionary forces to be in a scenario where they respect each other, recognise each other, and come together, as this will strengthen the revolution and bring it to a quick end. However, we cannot expect it to be easy to create such a scenario, as everyone comes from different backgrounds, has unique experiences, and may also carry traumas from the revolution. We must build trust step by step, patiently negotiate, and find a solution together. Instead of trying to defeat each other, we must cooperate with each other to defeat the dictators!” Deputy Minister Ngai Tam Maung stated.
