PALAW, Myanmar – Local people staged a demonstration against MP Ohn Khin from House of Representatives and MP Kin Shein from House of Nationalities on June 9 over not transparently spending development funds allotted by parliament for Palaw, Myeik District.
About 200 local electors staged demonstration against the two MPs for allegedly misappropriating local area development funds of 100 million kyats allotted by parliament for 2018-19 financial year.
Palaw Township, No. 1 Ward administrator Thiha said, “Over 4 million kyats of this fund was allotted for each ward to be spent in local development but they spent only a little amount of this money. So, we staged this demonstration in protest.”
