The matter of whether U Wisara Road was actually repaired and a reprimand for one MP who was reading a journal while the parliament is in session were among the issues discussed at the latest meeting of the Pyithu Hluttaw on Tuesday.
U Win Khaing, Union Minister for Construction, made remarks to the Hluttaw in regard to a question raised by Dr Khin Maung Maung, constituency of Dagon Myothit (North), to wit: “U Wisara Road in Dagon Myothit (North) is a 1.1-mile long concrete road with 16 feet in width. It is learnt that it will take 40 tonnes of tar provided that a one-inch layer is surfaced further on the concrete road. It is true that in some parts of the concrete road, potholes were refilled with concrete, but 60 per cent of the road was found in the original state.”
Afterward, Dr Khin Maung Maung submitted to the Hluttaw another question: “I have never found the above-said concrete road refilled with 170 tonnes of concrete. I would like to know where 170 tonnes of concrete have gone.”
In reply to this question, U Win Khaing, Union Minister for Construction, clarified on behalf of the Yangon Region Cabinet: “On the matter of refilling the road with 170 tonnes of concrete, which started to have been repaired in the year of 2015, there was, on 2 November of 2016 at the office of Dagon Myothit (North) township development committee, a meeting with responsible persons including U Myint Oo, deputy head of Engineering department, assistant head U Kyin Ohn, U Aung Soe of branch head of Engineering department’s road and bridge section, U Myat Maw Oo, head of township development committee, Dagon Myothit (North), U Thet Naung, U Soe Thiha Lin, U Hla Tun, U Soe Naing Aung, U Khin Maung Si, U Ko Ko Gyi and U Zaw Naing. In the meeting all participants including ward administrative committee members said that the work of refilling potholes of the road was true and they themselves helped in the work.”
After the answer by the Union Minister, Dr Khin Maung Maung added, “Is it an acceptable matter whether 170 tonnes of concrete had been used to refill the potholes? Until now, there were not answers as to whether the present case was examined by forming a particular committee or something. The responsible persons invited only those who would easily accept their submissions to the meeting. I want to know whether there is still an arrangement to examine the matter by inviting trustworthy persons such as chairman of Mahamyaing Market, chairman of Mahamyaing Development Committee and chairman of Taw Win Ayar Development Committee.”
The Union Minister replied that he would hand over the matter to Yangon Region Cabinet, and their reply will be answered via the Speaker of the Hluttaw.
In addition, U Win Khaing, Union Minister, replied to questions raised by U Lar Mar Lay of Saut Law constituency and U Toe Thaung of Moe Meik constituency. At yesterday’s sitting, the Speaker of Pyithu Hluttaw gave a warning to a parliamentarian who was reading a journal at the time of the Assembly.
