MONYWA-Sagaing Region Parliamentary Committee for Education, Health, Sports and Culture yesterday submitted a proposal for health and education development in Naga Self-administered Zone, to the Sagaing Region Parliament.
Moreover, MP Dr Kyaw Thu Han Tun from No.1 Constituency in Kantbalu Township said that there had been many difficulties for the teachers who were deployed at far-flung areas in Naga Region.
“In Naga Region, there are about 100 students who passed the matriculation exam last year. But, the students can’t attend the higher education. That’s why we met with their parents and interviewed with them. They[parents] think that they are dutiful parents as they enrolled their children for completion of matriculation exam. Moreover, parents can’t afford the cost of higher education. In Naga region, there is no advanced education course. No Naga children teach the higher education subject. So, we want to fulfill their desire about the higher education. If an education college will be opened in Naga Region, it is long-term satisfying to fulfill the requirements of faculty members as well as the education development will be blooming,” said MP Dr Kyaw Thu Han Tun.
MP Dr Kyaw Tun Han Tun also said that when Committee for Education, Health, Sports and Culture Committee from Sagaing Region Parliament visited Naga Region and Pone Nyo Naut Gone village in India Border, the locals said that they had never seen not only the administrative body of Naga Self-Administered Zone but also the Sagaing Region Government Committee.
“The State Level officials including the President, ministers and Regional Government Committee visited the Naga Region during the Naga Festival. But, no one come here the remaining period. That’s why the authorities can’t hear the public voice and know about the public requirements because they didn’t go to the far-flung villages. As for us, we have responsibility to fulfill their requirements of education and health sectors. In Naga Region, education, health, transportation access and socio-economic sectors are very difficult for the locals. We know about the sectors before going. When we arrive there, we are feeling guilty,” said Dr Kyaw Thu Han Tun.
There are over 266 villages and 128,489 people in Naga Region.
