YANGON — The National League for Democracy (NLD) on Monday issued a statement ordering its newly elected Members of Parliament to start picking up trash as of December 13.
The statement, signed by NLD Central Executive Committee U Nyan Win, said that not only the victorious MPs but also party executive members and all ordinary members have to join the nationwide project to keep Myanmar trash-free.
U Nyan Win said that details of the project will be published in the upcoming issue of the party’s mouthpiece journal, D Wave.
The order for MPs to collect trash was issued by NLD chair Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. She first mooted the cleanup plan last month at a meeting between the executive body and the winning MPs following the election in which her party won about 80 percent of the contested seats in Parliament, giving them a majority.
