နအဖ စစ္အာဏာရူးတို႔က ျပည္သူလူထုအေပၚ ဘယ္ေလာက္ ရက္စက္တယ္ဆိုတဲ့ သက္ေသ အေထာက္အထား တခုပါပဲ။

ရန္ကုန္လို ၿမိ့ဳေတာ္ႀကီးမွာေတာင္ ဒီလို ရက္စက္မႈေတြ ရွိေနရင္ နယ္ၿမိ့ဳေလးေတြမွာ၊ ရြာေတြမွာ၊ ေတာခ်ဳံအံုၾကားေတြမွာ ဒီထက္မက ရက္စက္ေနမယ္ဆိုတာ ေျပာစရာေတာင္ မလိုပါဘူး။

သက္ေသ အေထာက္အထားေတြ ရသေလာက္ စုေဆာင္းၾကပါ။ တာ၀န္ယူ လုပ္ေဆာင္ေပးႏိုင္သူေတြဆီကို လက္ဆင့္ကမ္းေပးၾကပါ။

လူ႔အခြင့္အေရး ေဖာက္ဖ်က္ေနတဲ့ သူေတြကို သက္ဆိုင္ရာက အေရးယူႏိုင္ေအာင္ လိုအပ္သလို ဆက္လုပ္သြားရမွာပဲ ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။

အရင္က တုိင္တန္းတင္ျပတဲ့ပုံစံကုိ အဂၤလိပ္လုိ ျပဳစုထားေပမယ့္ အခုအခါ ပုိမုိလြယ္ကူေအာင္ ျမန္မာလုိပါ ျပဳစုထားတယ္လုိ႔ ဆုိပါတယ္။

ေပးပုိ႔ရမဲ့ အီးေမးလ္လိပ္စာက ျဖစ္ေၾကာင္း ၈၈ မ်ိဳးဆက္ေက်ာင္းသားေတြက ေျပာပါတယ္။
