Two cargo trucks carrying 127,797 copies of school textbooks from KG to Grade 4 sent by Upper Myanmar Government Printing Factory (Mandalay) to Haka District Education Department in the first week of June 2021 were stopped by armed insurgents between mile posts 35 and 40 on Gangaw-Haka road near Ywavan Village. Those insurgents ordered truck workers to unload the school textbooks from the vehicles and return the trucks.
On arrival at the scene, security forces found destruction by fire at the site of school textbooks.
While the government is striving for teaching children in Chin State during the schooling period, extremist armed insurgents brutally committed the destruction of school textbooks, causing loss to the children from Chin State.—MNA
