Pyithu Hluttaw approves amendments to two bills

Untitled-1THE Pyithu Hluttaw (Lower House) discussed and approved amendments to two bills, including the Presidential Security Bill, during its meeting in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
U Tin Maung Oo from the Shwe Pyi Thar Constituency asked if the Ministry of Immigration and Population had a plan to amend the law and bylaw on issuing of household lists and citizenship identity cards to migrants and squatters.
In response to the question, the Deputy Minister for Immigration and Population replied that the ministry has no plans to amend the law and bylaw since the issue came from the internal migration of people.
While currently issuing citizenship cards to migrants and squatters, the ministry is facing difficulties in getting correct and complete information and documents from migrants and squatters as they are moving from one place to another frequently.
Regarding the question of MP T Khun Myat from Kalewa Constituency on fighting against narcotic drugs, Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Brig-Gen Kyaw Kyaw Tun said the government adopted a 15-year plan from 1999 to 2014 for the elimination of drugs and adopted a five year plan from 2014-2015 to 2018- 2019 for the elimination of the production and use of drug, stepping up its efforts in the fight.
