Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Brig-Gen Kyaw Zan Myint replied that there is no plan to upgrade Panglong Town to the township in southern Shan State at the Wednesday’s session of Amyotha Hluttaw.
U Sai Kyaw Zaw Than of Shan State constituency No 2 asked about upgrading Panglong Town to a township. The deputy minister said that the town was upgraded from a sub-township formed with four wards within administrative area of Loilem Township, adding that Shan State government did not recommend upgrading the town.
U Thaw Zin Oo of Magway Region constituency No 9 asked about a plan to extend installation of transformers in Ward 15 in Pakokku and upgrade load capacity of sub-power stations. Deputy Minister for Electric Power U Aung Than Oo replied that installation of transformers and power lines will depend on the additional budget of the region government in 2015-16 fiscal year.
The speaker of Amyotha Hluttaw informed the Hluttaw of sending back Myanmar Red Cross Society bill by Pyithu Hluttaw.
