CDM movement is actually to manipulate the life of innocent civil servants for politics. It is a movement to complicate social life and politics. It is to destroy the lives of innocent young employees. It is to push the life of active and young public servants to darkness.
However, we have heard the voice of some civil servants who did not join the CDM movement with the conscious decision as below.
“I am Sergeant Win Naing Aung (not his real name). I work under the Number (1) Security Police. We, as the Myanmar Police Force, are working to protect the life and property of the people. We also maintain the current situation according to the rules and regulations. Our true aspiration is to let the public live in peace. That is why we are taking our responsibilities seriously without joining CDM so that people are safe.
We will also earn the trust of the people upon the Myanmar Police Force. I am personally trying not to involve in CDM and I would like to encourage other members of the Police Force not to join CDM. I find that CDM is creating chaos for the life of employees and the State. Therefore, I want all employees to value our work and continue to work peacefully without joining CDM.
I think the staff should stay as staff. I have a son and a daughter and I have responsibilities to take care of them. I make the living only by being a teacher and I am so scared CDM would harm my work. We have to be loyal to our work. It is not only our family who gets hurt when we join CDM, but our superiors are also embarrassed.
A judicial staff
I am a judicial staff. I am Daw Thuzar Aung (not her real name) and I work as the Deputy Judge of the Township. I am currently on duty in Shan State. I was in Yangon before and I was transferred here quite recently. I have been serving the country for over 20 years. I think the employee should stay as an employee and I do not like to mix the duty of work with politics. Our work is our profession and it was not easy to get this job. I had to get the relevant law degree and also had to study to become proficient in various legal affairs. I had to try very hard to get to this level. As it was not easy for me to get this job, it would be a loss for me if I became jobless due to CDM. Therefore, I do not agree with joining CDM. I would like to suggest to other judicial staff like me to return to work in time even if they joined CDM. It is very difficult to get a job these days even for an ordinary employee. It is better to work and live peacefully. I have two daughters and I work for my elders too. I do not have any other work than this. It will be difficult for me if something happens when I join CDM. That is why I believe it is the right choice to work for our work.
My name is Daw Tin Tin Ei (not her real name). I am a middle-class teacher in Rakhine State. I have been a teacher for 15 years and currently, I am preparing for the reopening of schools. I heard that some teachers are participating in the CDM movement. As for me, I have decided not to join CDM since its start. As I become older, I do not want to lose my service term. If something happens, no one can guarantee. I think the staff should stay as staff. I have a son and a daughter and I have responsibilities to take care of them. I make the living only by being a teacher and I am so scared CDM would harm my work. We have to be loyal to our work. It is not only our family who gets hurt when we join CDM, but our superiors are also embarrassed. The worst thing is that it is difficult to substitute proficient teachers like us in our region because of a language barrier. We have to know not only Burmese but also the Rakhine language, the ethnic dialects as well as other dialects so that we can teach effectively. Therefore, I decided not to involve in the CDM activity for my region, my people, the life of children and my life. Besides, I also want other teachers to return to work from CDM. We all are responsible for the development of our region and people. Thank you.
It is right. Buddha, himself, said it is a blessing to have an uncomplicated job. Everyone should work in a straightforward manner. It is the best. In other words, it is a blessing. As the CDM movement confused the responsibilities of employees and the situation of the State, it cannot be said an uncomplicated work. Hence, it is best for employees to avoid the CDM and it is the best choice to return to work in order to live peacefully.
