State Administration Council Chairman Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing meets officers, other ranks and family menbers of Myitkyina Station in Kachin State yesterday.

The Tatmadaw is a part of the country born of the people and the Tatmadaw and the history of the country are inseparable. It is necessary to understand that discharging the State defence duty is serving the country, and the Tatmadaw must be for the sake of the country. Servicemen need to dutifully serve their assignments while striving for the development of the nation as much as possible, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at the meeting with officers, other ranks and families of Myitkyina Station at Bala Min Htin Hall of the military command headquarters yesterday morning.
In his address, the Senior General said officers, other ranks and families must understand the important role of the Tatmadaw in the leadership of the national politics. The Tatmadaw pave the way for the democratization process the people aspire and successfully held the multiparty democracy general election in 2010 in a democratic manner.
The country had some requirements of widely understanding the democracy due to its start step. Global countries exercise democracy depending on their lifestyle, culture, traditions and customs.
The new government was elected in the 2015 multiparty democracy election to govern the country for five years. But, the country did not have deserved development in political, economic, social and other sectors with many criticisms over the efforts of the government.
Many facts of doubts for fairness over the freedom of expression for political parties were found in the canvassing of these parties before the election. A gigantic error of voter lists was found in the inspection of the Tatmadaw for the results of the 2020 election. Officials neglected the requests of the Tatmadaw to address the voting errors but they attempted to illegally seize the State power by convening the Third Hluttaw.
At present, the government emphasize the prosperity of the State, the firmly standing of the country on genuine disciplined multiparty democracy and the food sufficiency of the nation. But, saboteurs commit destructive acts for the State through various ways and means. Security forces and people need to join hands in preventing the destructive acts, and officers, other ranks and families need to understand the political situations.
The Tatmadaw is a part of the country born of the people and the Tatmadaw. The primary duty of the Tatmadaw is to defend the State, and the history of the country are inseparable. Officers and other ranks must have three kinds of capabilities for discharging the State defence duty, and they have to regularly take training sessions on a daily basis.
The servicemen discharging duty at any corps must have the capability to be ready to combat as infantry units and other corps need to take training for capacity enhancement to participate in the combined warfare.
Since its establishment, the Tatmadaw has been good discipline and obedience. It is necessary to understand that discharging the State defence duty is serving the country, and the Tatmadaw must be for the sake of the State. All need to prepare their minds to serve the State as much as possible.
Leaders must exercise fair leadership over the subordinates while subordinates must be disciplined with the nature of a good soldier. The Senior General called for avoiding liquor, cigarettes and betel quid which may harm the improvement of the life and control their indulgence. Servicemen need to dutifully serve their assignments while striving for the development of the nation as much as possible.
The Senior General urged them to strictly abide by the disciplines of COVID-19 for controlling the infection rate and effectively utilize their spare time during the days of the stay-at-home programme.
The Senior General presented foodstuffs to the commander and the wife of the Senior General, cash assistance for maternal and child to the wife of the commander.
