Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham visited a pagoda festival and a Shan New Year feast held at Hsenwi township, Shan State.
Shan State’s Chief Minister U Sao Aung Myat and ministers opened the festival and the feast.
At the ceremony, the vice president delivered a congratulatory speech on the occasion of Shan New Year.
Dr Sai Mauk Kham said that these events can be held due to the efforts of local people and the current peaceful situation, especially in the economic and administrative sectors.
He also said that some people have not fully appreciated the reform processes of the government in politics, the economy and administration which have been carried out since 2011.
The vice president noted that politics gives individuals or a party a clear mandate to implement policies and decisions for the welfare of the country.
He also suggested that people should elect parliamentarians sensibly, while the candidates themselves need to consider seriously whether they can work for the good of the country, and not for selfish reasons.
He also explained that state revenues are allocated by the parliament, and that the government spends the revenues on projects according to its budget, so there is a counter-balance between the parliament and the government.
The vice president reminded the locals to be cautious about which candidates they vote for.
After the pagoda festival and New Year feast, Dr Sai Mauk Kham visited the monument of the historic Shwe Nandaw residence and planted a tree marking the 100th anniversary of the grand building.
The vice president then paid homage at Maha Muni pagoda and donated offertories to the head monk of the township. Dr Sai Mauk Kham and party arrived back in Nay Pyi Taw from Lashio at 3 pm.
