Pyithu Hluttaw held its 18th-day session in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday, with the Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Dr Tun Win responding to questions on construction and irrigation works in rural areas.
Regarding a question about a town-to-town gravel road in Yenangyoung Township, the deputy minister said that upgrading the dirt road connecting Yenangyoung Township to Natmauk Township into a tarred one would be possible in the next fiscal year in accordance with the ministry’s annual priority lists.
Next, he replied to a question on the Hsintat river water-pumping project, saying that efforts were being made to irrigate 2,000 acres of farmland this fiscal year, up from 1,783 acres the previous year.
Despite the proposed fund of K175milllion for maintenance work of the project, the ministry received K114.7million from the Sagaing region government last year, added the deputy minister.
On construction of a bridge in Thayat Township, the deputy minister said that there were no plans to build a bridge over the Panichaung creek this fiscal year. But he pledged to put the proposed plan in the ministry’s annual priority lists.
During yesterday’s Pyithu Hluttaw session, Dr Hla Moe of Aungmyay Thazan Constituency proposed to allow members of election subcommissions who are not service personnel to be entitled to monthly salaries and allowances to the parliament.— Myanmar News Agency
