The Union Government returned 738.99 acres of confiscated land to 239 farmers in Taze township, Sagaing Region in the presence of Vice President U Henry Van Thio.
The land is a part of 2,526 acres which have been returned to the Union Government, out of 3,726 acres which were used for a project of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation.
Speaking on the occasion in Taze, Shwebo District, yesterday, Vice President U Henry Van Thio expressed thanks to the Sagaing Region Government and committees concerned for their efforts for returning the land to the rightful owners.
The second event came about 14 months after a similar event in which more than 3,790 acres of land were returned to 228 farmers in Kantbalu Township, Sagaing Region, in March.
