Shwe Baho Village, a settlement of ethnic nationals who have returned from Bangladesh, is peaceful and stable, according to authorities.
The village was set up for 50 out of 742 families that returned from Bangladesh between 2012 and 2014 under the arrangement of the Ministry of Border Affairs with a cost of K 250 million.
Artisan wells were also dug at a cost of K 22 million and the settlers were also provided with food for one year. “In 2002, a total of 50 one-storey houses were built for those who came back from Bangladesh. They have been allowed to live there in 2014 and 2015. Batteries, solar plates and inventors have also been provided to them so that they can use them the whole day,” Village Administrator U Tin Aung said. “What they can do is farming but they do not have cattle and they have to do with hoes, at a manageable level, only just two or three acres, I think they will be convenient but if they are just expecting assistance, it will not be convenient for them,” he said.
The monastery at the village was built at a cost of K 120 million in 2015-16 fy by the Ministry of Border Affairs and Security has been provided by the border guard police.
