MoI Union Minister U Maung Maung Ohn views the Samvezaniya religious hall.

Union Minister for Information U Maung Maung Ohn, accompanied by Sagaing Region Chief Minister U Myat Kyaw paid homage to Shwegyin Nikaya Upa Chairman Maha Nayaka Joint Shwegyin Sangharaja Chancellor of the Sitagu International Buddhist Academies and Sitagu Hospitals Sitagu Sayadaw Dr Bhaddanta Nyanissara at the academy in Sagaing yesterday.
The Union minister and the chief minister donated offertories, cash, books and journals published by MoI to Sayadaw. Then, the region chief minister explained the construction of Ponnyashin Beikman expanding the western platform of Soon Oo Ponnyashin Pagoda.
Afterwards, the Sayadaw delivered words of advice.
The Union Minister and party then viewed the Samvezaniya religious hall where the life circle of Buddha was depicted using the ten flowers of art and culture of Myanmar and the library of the Sayadaw.
They then inspected the MRTV retransmission station in Sagaing Region and met with the townselders and departmental officials at Sagaing District Agriculture Department.
During the meeting, the Union Minister said some unethical media outlets spread misinformation and false news to mislead the public, especially using social networks.
Although the ministry makes efforts to fulfil the rights of people to know the information and fight false news in various ways, there is still bullying and harassment using technology. Today, people are weak to uphold moral and ethical principles. Surely, Sagaing Region is proof of the propagation of Sasana and there should be peace in the region. Currently, the destructionists uttered threats, carried out arson attacks and committed murder in some areas of the region and all should participate in preventing such doings.
The Union minister also went to the IPRD office of Sagaing District in the morning session and inspected the kids’ reading room, public library, Mini Museum and computer room, and met with the staff at Community Centre and provided cash assistance. — MNA
