Pres­i­dent U Htin Kyaw, cen­tre, con­ceded yes­ter­day that his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s work had only just be­gun, as he helped de­liver hu­man­i­tar­ian re­lief to peo­ple dis­placed by flood­ing in Minbu town­ship, Magwe Re­gion. “Peo­ple will not be sat­is­fied with our ef­forts [over the first 100 days in of­fice], though we tried hard, as much as we could,” he said, en­cour­ag­ing those present to con­vey their crit­i­cism and dif­fi­cul­ties to him. The pres­i­dent and his en­tourage do­nated rice, bot­tled water and ed­i­ble oil, among other pro­vi­sions, to those in Minbu town­ship liv­ing in tem­po­rary camps due to flood­wa­ters. Ac­cord­ing to data from Minbu’s gen­eral ad­min­is­tra­tion de­part­ment, more than 10,000 peo­ple in the town­ship have been evac­u­ated due to flood­ing in re­cent weeks.
