THE Pyithu Hluttaw entered its 20th day session with a question and answer session and submission of three bills yesterday.
During the Q & A session Union Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Dr Aung Thu replied that it was impossible to build the Narwah dam in Mongyal Township due to budget cuts for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. The ministry, however, will request an allocation of funds for the dam construction project next year.
Regarding the provision of compensation to the affected persons of the canal-crossing bridge construction project in Einme Township, the Union minister said that payments of compensation for farmland and property losses are set to be disbursed following final calculations this month.
In his response to a question on whether a plan to build new bridges in Loilem Township is in motion the Union minister vowed to construct two new bridges over a creek in the township with the use of K17 million provided by the Rural Development Department. Next, U Hla Tint, member of the Union Election Commission, put forward the bills to amend the Pyithu Hluttaw Election Law, the Amyotha Hluttaw Election Law and the Region/State Hluttaw Election Law to parliament.
