“Thirteen proposals of the MP was changed into only questions,” said a member of CNP in Hakha.
In reply to a letter the parliamentary chairman said that the proposals will be very beneficial for people but it cannot be turned into reality under ingénue democracy.
The proposal deals with construction of a motor road, change town roads to black top, arrange blocks in town and village tract groups, district and extend townships, increase the number of school teachers, use local language up to the middle standard, to provide television and digging machines in various townships.
“It is a good sign, if things change towards people’s democracy. But it is not a normal proposal and therefore it had to be changed into questions in parliament. I think it was treated as a viewing question,” said an elderly person in Hakha town.
