Guwahati: A talk on the changing political scenario of Myanmar is organized at at Guwahati Press Club on Thursday (21 April 2016).

Senior journalist from Assam, Bidhayak Das will participate in the program starting at 3 pm as a resource person.

Presently based in Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar, Das is expected to highlight the overall change taking place in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) after the general elections held last year that politically empowered National League for Democracy chief Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as her party won a landslide victory.

India’s neighboring country was ruled by military generals for decades and Ms Suu Kyi was also put under house arrest. But slowly the southeast Asian nation is opening up and adopted democracy. Lately a civilian President, a trusted comrade of Nobel laureate Suu Kyi has also been placed at NayPieTaw.

The Assamese journalist will also explore the possibility of benefits for the people of northeast India with more contacts with the Myanmarese populace, particularly the northern part of the poverty stricken country. Better connectivity between the two regions is also an important matter to be discussed at the meet.

    We hope the new government will detach the military and the main religion that seem to bring much of the corruption, mismanagement, ill treatment of it’s citizens from the main government. Hope the new government will release the thousands that are been kept in prison. Get rid of the lucrative opium plantations. Bring harmony to the country by giving back the properties and businesses confiscated from the Muslims and other minorities.
