The Pyithu Hluttaw documented a proposal calling on the Union government to implement a crime reduction program as soon as possible after 16 representatives discussed it yesterday.
The proposal was submitted by Daw Khin Hninn Thit of the Padaung Constituency.
U Myat Lay Oo of the Htilin Constituency stressed the need to identify and eliminate the causes of criminal activity in order to meet success in the fight against crime. Crimes can be attributed to graft and corruption, lack of the rule of law, a growing gap between rich and poor, unemployment, availability of alcohol beverages and drugs, lack of education and times of hardship when people forget the laws they need to follow and respect, added the lawmaker.
He called for harsh actions to be taken against departmental staff involved in crimes by conducting thorough investigations.
Lt-Col Than Oo Lwin, the Defense Services personnel Pyithu Hluttaw representative, pointed out the high cost of crime to society, saying that crime undermines democracy. It is imperative to reduce high crime rate, he added.
Next, five parliamentarians held discussions on a motion calling for measures to combine farming with livestock breeding that can help rural farmers improve their per acre yields, thereby contributing towards ensuring poverty alleviation and a better living standard.
Then, a question-and-answer session followed, with Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Dr Tun Win responding to a question about compensation for farmers who suffered losses when the Hlinechaung Dam was shut down in Pale Township of Sagaing Region.
The deputy minister replied that there is no plan to compensate the local farmers as it can burden the government.
Next, the deputy minister responded to a question on the construction of two conduits and repair of 10,465-foot Shweli embankment, saying that work will kick off on the embankment during this open season.
