Nay Pyi Taw, 20 Nov — Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Brig-Gen Kyaw Kyaw Tun responded to questions for the ministry at the Amyotha Hluttaw session (Upper House) on Thursday.
In his response to a question on issuing land grants to families residing in Kanthaya Village formerly registered as Gatekon Village in Taikkyi Township in Yangon Region, the deputy minister said that since the village is situated on pasture land, it is necessary for the township general administration department to apply for the cancellation of the pasture land to the Ministry of Home Affairs in accordance with rules and regulations.  To change the name of the village, the Yangon Region chief minister is required to submit his recommendation to the president, according to the deputy minister. If approved, the residents can apply for land grants in accordance with rules and regulation, the deputy minister said.
Regarding a question as to whether the ministry has plans to purchase helicopters for the fire brigade, the deputy minister said that despite the efforts of the ministry to improve the skill of personnel in fire brigades by sending them to undergo training at home and abroad, no plan has been made to purchase helicopters as priority has been placed on expanding the fire brigade, substituting old fire engines with new ones and purchasing modern equipment.
As to the questions on drug trafficking in Rakhine State, the deputy minister said a number of measures have been taken to prevent the inflow of drugs into the state and that educational measures are also being implemented at schools.
