Dr Win Myat Aye, Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, replied to the question raised by Dr Kyaw Than Tun (Canton) of Constituency 3, Mandalay Region, as to whether there were any plans to rehabilitate and assign duties to children who were going astray, with a view to guiding them to become valuable sons of the country. “The ministry drew a leading project for the eradication of those who were going astray on roads, beggars and unprotected disabled ones,” Dr Win Myat Aye said. “And the ministry has been performing tasks for those children to get protection and reunite with their parents or guardians and to be able to enter social circles.
“The ministry is appointing youths having the qualifications described in paragraph 75 of the Police Manual (First Volume), out of those wishing to join the Police Force from youth training schools, as policemen, those having the qualifications described in Regulation 12 of the Myanmar Fire-Brigade as fire-brigade members. Tatmadaw opened Yenyun police training courses in the Institute of Martial Arts & Sports of the Tatmadaw under the Burma Auxiliary Force Act, 1943, from 1990 to 2008, allowing them to assign duties of their own accords. Due to the issue of law withdrawing “The Burma Auxiliary Force Act enacted under Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Law 7 on 28 February 2014, anything more was not performed. Presently, the ministry cannot produce yet as the transformed youths for future Myanmar by training children and youths who went astray and drug-addicts at the Tatmadaw, Fire-Brigade training schools. The Social Welfare Department has implemented tasks of opening 10 youth training schools for youths needed to be protected, supplying children who went astray with food and giving aids in social ways for physical and mental development, giving academic teaching and vocational training, having them registered in the national registration department, linking with respective ministries and departments.”
Dr Myo Thein Gyi, Union Minister for Education, replied to the question raised by U Shan Alr of Chin State Constituency 2 as to whether there was a plan to open an Arts and Science University in Nay Pyi Taw.
“To build a university, projects must be drawn and implemented for getting the sufficient land plot, building university, teaching and administration matters and acquisition of granted budget. Under the current situation, there is no plan to build an Arts and Science University in Nay Pyi Taw in the 2017-2018 academic year.”
In addition, Dr Myo Thein Gyi replied to questions raised by U Tun Lin of Constituency 3, Taninthari Region, U Kyaw Swe of Constituency 11, Magwe Region, U Man Law Moung of Chin State Constituency 8 and Daw Ohn Kyi of Constituency 4, Mandalay Region. U Kyaw Thiha of Constituency 12, Mandalay Region, submitted the motion to allow the motion presenter to withdraw the submission of the motion. Mahn Win Khaing Than, Speaker of the Amyotha Hluttaw, took the approval of the Hluttaw to allow the withdrawal, and it was announced that the withdrawal of the motion was granted. The 10th day meeting of 2nd Amyotha Hluttaw 4th regular session will be held on February 16.
