MEMBERS of the country’s defence services must preserve long-held Tatmadaw traditions while simultaneously building further trust among the people, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing told officials at the National Defence College in Nay Pyi Taw on Tuesday.
The senior general said that the Tatmadaw “assumed state power three times to restore stability by sacrificing lives.”
As Hluttaw [parliamentary] representatives are selected to serve the public interest, members of the Tatmadaw are required to avoid electing candidates that are unable or unwilling to take on such a responsibility.
The senior general went on to say that members of the Tatmadaw must attempt to reduce costs wherever possible, particularly in relation to expenses such as vehicles, fuel, electricity and phone calls.
The Tatmadaw is also striving to provide a comfortable future for its veterans by building homes for senior citizens, he said.—Myawady
