The deputy minister of Home Affairs rebuffed a proposal to reduce the ministry’s heavy workload put before the Amyotha Hluttaw on Tuesday.
Saying the ministry does not see the need to share it responsibilities, Maj-Gen Kyaw Zan Myint explained that all of its departments work together under close supervision of regional governments and the Nay Pyi Taw council.
He said the ministry, as a law enforcement body, continues to implement its goals in line with guidelines and policies laid
down by the government.
He added the brigades and departments under the ministry work together to carry out measures for national security, rule of law and order, control of narcotic drugs, regional development activities and public services in all parts of the country.
