Plans are underway to make Warpeik, which was burnt down during recent violent attacks, into a model village.
“We are going to make Warpeik Village a model village properly and we are choosing the site for the village by inviting the cooperation of the residents,” said Chairman U Myint Khaing of the Maungtaw Township Administrative Committee at the meeting of the committee and residents of Kyikanpyin and Warpeik at the high school in Kyikanpyin Village.
After the meeting, members of the committee and residents visited the chosen site on both sides of on Kyikanpyin-Zinbinyar road and Kyikanpyin-Nwayontaung Road.
“We are glad that our village will be rebuilt as a model village and we are determined to cooperate with authorities. I have always wanted to live in my own house,” said Warpeik resident Mammud Armain.
“We have no objection for building the model village, but we would like to request purified drinking water for our village,” said Mamaud Narse of the Kyikanpyin (Middle) Village.
