PROJECTS with probability of success will be implemented, said Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Dr Tun Win at a session of the Amyotha Hluttaw yesterday.
In his response to a question over whether a plan to build dams for irrigation in Rakhine State, the deputy minister pledged to implement the works which are considered beneficial depending on budget allocations.
It is required we take a certain length of time looking at feasibility studies and EIA and SIA reports needed for the construction of sluice gates and dykes to protect against saltwater intrusion into 29 creeks in Pauktaw Township, added the deputy minister.
Next, Union Minister for Labour, Immigration and Population U Thein Swe responded to a question about prefixes like ‘Mg, Ma, Ko and U’ added to the names of ethnic minorities, saying that there are no special orders, instructions or laws on name prefixes for national races living in the country.
The name prefixes are used on letters or curriculum vitae to express age and gender in accordance with instructions for rules and regulations, said the Union minister, adding that omission of a prefix written in Myanmar language in their citizenship scrutiny cards can be allowed in accordance with the rules and regulations.
Regarding a question about the ministry’s relaxation of restrictions under its 100-day plan, the Union minister said that people moving from one place to another in the country will be allowed to have household registration certificates representing their present townships and ID cards. They must hold the cards without going back to their native regions after meeting the requirements of a scrutinising process.
Of 210,869 Kokang people aged above 10, citizenship scrutiny cards have been issued to 92,744, associate citizen scrutiny cards to 104, naturalised citizen scrutiny cards to 354, national registration cards to 74,645 and national verification cards to 5,245 in accord with the 1982 Citizenship Law, added the Union minister.
During yesterday’s Amyotha Hluttaw session a motion calling for the implementation of a plan to deal with flooding and water shortages that occur yearly in delta region and the dredging of extinct creeks and rivers that benefit local people was submitted to the parliament.
