Aung San Suu Kyi is the very reason why the international communities or other countries have been ignoring the plight of Myanmar people until so far.

Aung San Suu Kyi is completely inhumane as she immorally sided with the Myanmar military in framing and accusing of Myanmar Rohingya as terrorists untruly instead of protecting Myanmar Rohingya from being genocided by the Myanmar military where the Myanmar military lawlessly massacred, raped Rohingya during the Aung San Suu Kyi's government before.

NUG was formed with members of the immorral Aung San Suu Kyi's political party so international communities shall not support NUG as well as anything that involves with the immortal Aung San Suu Kyi.

In order to obtain the support of international communities, all ties must be cut off to the immorral Aung San Suu Kyi or else not only the international communities but also all of the militias of other ethnics in Myanmar who had suffered discrimination unfairly under the Aung San Suu Kyi's government before would not support in unity.

Anyway, Aung San Suu Kyi is the most shameful hypocrisy that is well known all over the world and not a democracy icon at all so it's best for Myanmar people to stay away from this Immorral icon going forward for good.

Myanmar has become a lawless hellhole prison under the leadership of the illegal coup military gang which now forces everyone in Myanmar to register household registration lawlessly and many houses are randomly checked against the household registration and arrests or illegal break-in for unoccupied house or thievery are suffered by the people during the random household registration check.

There is more peace in the US prison than everywhere in Myanmar as everywhere in Myanmar is no difference to the worst prison in the world as everyone in Myanmar is treated like criminal by the illegal military gang.

Forcing to register household registration and disturbing houses without warrant should be stopped immediately for the convenience of people in Myanmar or else all people in Myanmar shall become the illegal millitary gang's enemies for life.

Not only the NLD blocks the roads but also the soldiers also ban people from using few essential roads for going back home.

Blocking roads is illegal and wrong and as a representative government, the military should act as a responsible government and should unblock all roads which the terrorist NLD has done so far.

Or else, people would see the military as having no ability to represent as a government.

Blocking road is also a crime and all the others including of urging people to stop going for work, urging people to night watch their wards by misleading people as if the motive is to prevent from arson but not in reality, urging people to strike pot and pan disgracefully at 8pm daily, etc .
All these crimes should be added into the leaders of NLD including the mastermind Suu Kyi so that this kind of crimes would no longer be committed for being treated as a crime.
NLD should be dismantled immediately and their family should be pressured financially and mentally for committing crimes but terrorism would not lead to the good solution so the military should not abuse terrorism for quick solution but more arrests should be done to people blocking roads, people who lead striking pots as well as mislead wards to night watch to prevent from arson, etc

Now the military urgently need to completely clear and unblock all roads during curfew hours daily in order to function, continue and build as a nation.

People in Myanmar should also enjoy full right of freedom just like people enjoy in European countries.

Recent removing of security protection by the military is adding lots of fear and insecurities to the people to the extent of capable and rich people planning to permanently migrate to other democratic countries around the world.
People are the weath to this country as much as to the natural resources so military should learn to appreciate people in order to improve and raise the status of this country on the international stage.

In order to retain people is to win the heart of people and this can be initiated by providing security protection, peace, etc to the people.

The requirement of overnight guest registration, lawless entering or lawless search of property, etc should be repealed immediately so as to remove people's fear and worry.

In order to return peace and full security to the people, it's essential for the current military to follow democracy rule strictly so that a warrant should be required in order to enter or search a property and a video recording should be done during a property search or of entering a property so that polices or soldiers would not dare to steal or rob money, gold, precious goods, etc from the owner of the property during a property search or of entering a property just like what happened exactly under the era of Than Shwe's lawless military rule.

The current military needs just a bit of kindness and patient in order to act like the democracy system and consequently would win the heart of the people.

Security should be provided by the military during curfew hours in order to prevent NLD from spreading rumors, causing chaos around 11PM every night and asking people to arm and night-watch their ward during curfew hours which NLD's action is illegal and abusing resource to the people.

The lawless congregation and protest of NLD should be stopped.
The source of finance supply to feed the protesters should be traced and the bank account should be frozen.

All leaders and speakers of all protests should be video-recorded in secret and the arrest should be done with warrants every night until all protests end for good.
The protests shouldn't last for more than 2 weeks.

NLD is nothing but a troublemaker so this party should be banned for peace.
The culprit Suu Kyi should be sent to the real jail with hard labour such as washing toilet instead of allowing her to enjoy under house arrest while people are suffering now for the sake of her selfish power struggle.

Peace should be restored as soon as possible without affecting the normal routine with full right of freedom.

The requirement of the overnight guest registration should not be imposed to the family like people staying in their parent house for overnight or parent staying into her children's house for overnight or else this would be too inhumane and unacceptable.

Since all the power and force belong to the military, the overnight guest registration is not necessary because this adds lots of insecurities to all people like people being afraid of the trouble of being checked the household registration randomly and undemocratically without rule and order.

Instead the military should remove the requirement of the overnight guest registration and also add more security to the people in order to win the heart and mind of people so a warrant should be required either to enter a house or to arrest people, anyway both time and opportunity are at the hand of military so adding more patience and following the rule and order should create a better image for the military.

Is there anything to be afraid of for the military?
The military has got all the power and the force.
If nothing to be afraid of, it should not be necessary for the military to block the internet.

I don't like Suu Kyi but I don't like my internet to be blocked either.
It's a balance that the military should carefully maintain in order to not provoke all anti-Suu Kyi people by blocking the essential internet in their daily life or else the anti-Suu Kyi people might be forced to act against the military which is not good for both parties while both should be united against Suu Kyi.

Anyway, the military should not act unreasonably above the limit of balance and then everything should be fine eventually. ( Internet and international flight, etc of all should be opened normally again as before, as a gesture of goodwill, the military should bring benefit instead of harm to the people going forward)

Seems urgently need to implement a guided democracy system instead of the 1 year of state of emergency in order to appease the expectation of the people before the situation coming into out of control.

Under the guided democracy system, the elected government may need an approval from the military for every new policy in order to stop repeating the ripoff policies imposed by the authoritarian Suu Kyi so that the benefit of democracy system would be enjoyed by the whole population instead of few privileged people.

The democracy system under Suu Kyi is not fair to the Myanmar people because restaurant food price in Yangon became more expensive than Kuala Lumpur, Xi'an, etc now under Suu Kyi's ignorance and even the minimum daily wage was not enough to have either 1 or 2 regular set of meal in Yangon now unlike in Malaysia where people have their whole-day meals outside with their minimum wage without any problem.

The problem in Myanmar is that the useless Suu Kyi's government didn't control the ripoff food price from most greedy restaurants unlike Malaysia where even the rip-off price for a Milo drink was heavily fined according to a Malaysia news so consequently the greedy Yangon restaurants made fortunes and normal people couldn't afford the restaurant food anymore with their minimum wage anymore under the brainless Suu Kyi unlike before the democracy system. It feels like no government presence in Yangon under Suu Kyi to seek justice and right for the normal people in their daily life.
The next government should have a say of the acceptable prices for food which is adjusted based by the raw food price and daily minimum wage.

Suu Kyi is clearly a rubbish coming from London where she was already useless in London as well before coming to Myanmar.

All her inspiration is nothing but a rubbish.
Myanmar was better under Ne Win until this jobless Suu Kyi came to Myanmar to fight against her own brother for a property left behind by her mother and she even shamelessly asked her brother to give her the whole property so that she may arrange the property for a museum in her mother's memory but very soon she sold the furniture inside the property and changed the painting color of of the interior which bewildered her brother a lot without understanding what kind of creature she really was according to the BBC interview.

Life looks unbearable like people sleeping like corpses in a roll in tiny flat unlike never seen before under Ne Win's era and paid whopping 35,000 Kyat per person per month under the era of Suu Kyi and this undertaker Suu Kyi even went further and forced to collect 12% hostel rent tax from these poor hostel dwellers.
The life of Myanmar people is no difference to the life of cockroach under the fake democracy system led by Suu Kyi.
All is because of the skyrocketing property price but nothing was done under Suu Kyi to suppress the property price to restore to the level before the democracy system kicked in into Myanmar.

Balance of life has been completely destroyed by the foolish Suu Kyi and don't know what she's trying to accomplish either but clearly Myanmar is heading nowhere but planning to become the greatest ripoff destination in Asia where tourists wouldn't even come in the future because of the total unreasonable ripoff comparing to the surrounding countries of Myanmar and not for offering any value for money.

She raised the minimum wage by 50% before and consequently helped Vietnam where all foreign investments flocking into which were initially destined for Myanmar.
Suu Kyi did more harm to Myanmar than helping Myanmar so tens of millions of people are still without works while in Vietnam there are not enough people for employment due to lots of foreign investments.
For what Suu Kyi gifted the few millions of jobs to Vietnam! In order to raise the living stardard of Myanmar people? Then what, no job for ten of millions of Myanmar people...
Suu Kyi is out of touch to the reality and brainless.

The deduction of 25% salary from the government salary of NLD members by Suu Kyi is the greatest corruption and it's a crime too so Suu Kyi must return all salary deduction to the NLD members.

The advanced tax of 6% implemented under Suu Kyi is also the greatest ripoff policy which should be abandoned immediately to return justice to the people.
There is no such advanced tax in any other country in this world so this can be done only by the only world-famous fake democracy icon Suu Kyi who is good for nothing but faking which even fooled the whole world for over 2 decades until Suu Kyi revealed herself of being the most unrighteous and hypocritical person by shielding the military against the powerless Rohingya people who did help elect her in 2015 election.
Suu Kyi know nothing of gratitude because she is short-sighted without vision whatsoever.

Backsliding should be stopped for good so freedom of internet, speedy passport issuing, etc of all the good things of the past should be continued for good without disturbing and ID should be expedited in issuing for people born in Myanmar regardless of their foreign-origin and all corruptions should be removed from the customs and immigration department so that ID should be issued as fast as the passport, there are always way to work without harming the normal routine and that is what the military should carefully come up with a plan without abusing power and extremism.

Freehold should be provided instead of leasthold for all land.
Banning of farmland from converting to normal land should be repealed.
And 80% confiscation of farmland for initiating a project on the firmland under Dracula Suu Kyi should be repealed as well.
Everything was normal before the democracy system kicked in and then people suffered endless ripoff under the democracy system like people not being to afford skyrocketing property and poor people with few acres of firmland became billionares overnight, everything under this ripoff democracy system is so unfair and unreasonable, it should be time for a change for good.

It's time to place the priority for the people so that life would not be the same anymore and would not be burdensome anymore.
Corruptions in government departments are really the culprits which makes people suffers endlessly until now for over half a century so in order to place the priority for the people is to end the corruptions once for for all without mercy for the evils or else the future would be destroyed for Myanmar for the remaining century.
It's a matter of life or death and over half a century has been wasted in complete corruptions so it's time to make the right decision in order to not regret on the day of reaching the century.

Even the military can't stand Aung San Suu Kyi's corruption so please consider all the suffering that people went through since the independence.

So it should be time to suppress the corruption in government once and for all for good so as to make the greatest impression in Myanmar history for the future generations to remember and narrate that at least under whose rule all corruptions in government were eliminated unlike never seen in Myanmar history.

Myanmar ID should be immediately given to people born in Myanmar regardless of coming from foreign origin or not just like the people born from foreign origin in US are guaranteed for US citizenship. Is Myanmar greater than US? If not, please be humble and at least accept people born in Myanmar from foreign origin who actually contribute more prosperities to Myanmar so their intelligence and contributions should be appreciated and recognized for good instead of discriminating them or else it's the greatest loss for Myanmar.

Good service is what the military lacks to make a good impression to the people and the military would never be able to provide good service considering of their background so civil servants of good manner should be employed instead of the soldiers to provide good service to the people.

All ripoff policies imposed by Suu Kyi should be abandoned in order to return justice to the people such as the banning of Yangon license for imported car, the outrageous 150% import duty or tax for importing a car, the recent 150% raising of electricity price, etc, property price should be restored to the era before the democracy system or before year 2011 in order to return justice to the people, etc. Cattle should be banned again from exporting so as to comfort people's burden and etc

It's time to make a historical change for good.

The price of Suzuki Swift car is just 100 Lakhs kyat or 5.49 Lakhs in India according to the India news below

But the price of this exact car is 209 Lakhs Kyat or 11.45 Lakhs Rupee in Myanmar.

So this car is 109% (209-100=109,109/100x100) more expensive in Myanmar comparing to India.

So from this inhumane ripoff, people and investors can see clearly that the hypocrite Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of the current Myanmar government is not only the most famous fake democracy icon but also the most shameless Myanmar Dracula sucking the blood of all people and investors mercilessly under her thievery tyranny.

The price of the cheapest wine in Myanmar is almost double expensive comparing to the cheap wine in Japan.

The price of a bottle of the Alpaca marlot wine from Chile country is just around 5,000 kyat in Japan but there is no way to find a bottle of foreign wine for less than 10,000 kyat in Yangon, Myanmar.

The ripoff direction led by the current corrupt government is unsustainable so consequently destroying the quality of life as well as all the record of balance maintained under the previous military regime.

The military regime understood what was needed for fundamental survival and didn't touch areas where the survival would be badly hurt for the survival of the low income family.

But the current undertaker Suu Kyi government even doesn't spare the poor and force to raise the price of the essential electricity price by at least 150% few months ago unlike never seen throughout the history of Myanmar government.

People would realize sooner or later how evil the Suu Kyi government to the people.

People helped elected the corrupt party of Suu Kyi twice since 2016 in believing her party would help alleviate the heavy burden of their life but instead Suu Kyi adds more loads of burden to the people by raising the price of electricity by 150% from 50 kyat to 125 kyat for 1 unit of electricity though it just cost 12 kyat to produce for 1 unit of electricity through the hydropower plant and more than 50% of all electricity is produced through the hydropower plant in Myanmar.
Many taxes are either raised unfairly such as the car import duty or tax, etc or many unfair taxes are collected under her administration unlike never seen before and discrimination starts being practiced against the rules of law set by herself such as collecting almost 50% more for the usage of electricity from 125 kyat to 180 kyat for 1 unit of electricity for the residents of the golden city condo, other condos etc.

The corruption of Suu Kyi didn't end here and she also sides with the corrupt government workers deliberately by raising their salary at least twice to the extent of the salary of the government worker becoming the higher salary comparing to the outside jobs unlike the previous governments where the salary of government worker is always lower than the outside jobs.

The corruption of Suu Kyi didn't end here either and she rewared herself 150 millions kyat worth of free car import license recently as well as an enormous land of 400 square feet in total area in a good location in the capital where it's even suitable to build for at least 5 big Yangon Shangri-La hotels.

There seems no hope and future under her narrow-minded mismanagement bundled with corruption going forward and the backsliding of the last 4 years would be predicted to be repeating for the next 4 years unfortunately.

Myanmar NLD government VS Myanmar WA government

Under the foolish Aung San Suu Kyi's leadership, covid has been spreading badly to the extent of Myanmar being ranked for the top 3 position in spreading the most covid in Asean just in a few months, 2-5 months unlike never seen before in history.
Indeed the foolish Suu Kyi is seeking help from the most useless country called India which is ranked the top second position in spreading the most covid on the international stage so it's no wonder the worst day is ahead waiting for Myanmar to suffer more covid under the foolish Suu Kyi's leadership.

The WA government's leadership is unlike the foolish Suu Kyi and the WA government copies the best method of covid prevention available in the world.
And it's indeed the China which is the only country in the world to be able to isolate and eliminate covid completely unlike never seen before in history.
And that is exactly the wise WA government has been executing the best covid-elimination method and tested everyone for covid for free in the whole Mine La city and anyone reporting of anyone not being tested for covid would be awarded 60 thousands kyat so very soon all the regions under the WA government would be covid-free.

So these are the differences between the wise and foolish leadership.

There is no law and order under the current mess-up government.

Though the current most dishonest government imposed to charge the residential household for 6,050 kyat exactly for the usage of first 100 units of electricity since July 2019 but the residential households of Golden City Condo, etc are currently being charged whopping 18,000 kyat exactly for the usage of first 100 units of electricity.
So the residential households of Golden City Condo, etc have to pay 198% more or 11,950 kyat more comparing to other residential households for the usage of first 100 units of electricity so this isn't fair and acceptable for the residential households of Golden City Condo, etc

So the culprits responsible for this thievery ripoff must be jailed in order to return justice to the victims of the residential households of Golden City Condo, etc and then immediately return fairness to the the residential households of Golden City Condo, etc for the usage of electricity usage.
The Yangon chief minister should be investigated for power abuses and corruptions.

Or else Myanmar is not acceptable as a responsible parter on the international stage.
So it's no wonder that no foreign investment is coming to Myanmar anymore since the beginning of the current most corrupt government because no investor trusts a great thief like the current Myanmar government.

Myanmar ripoff is unlike never seen before in history.

Condo developers are requested to build their own power station by the current ripoff government and it costs the condo developers a whopping 1800,000,000 kyat lakhs.

Not only the condo developers are ripped off but also the condo resident are too badly.
Though there is an open policy from the current government to charge 50-120 kyat per unit of electricity to home user and 180 kyat per unit of electricity to commercial usage.
But the condo residents are currently being charged at the commercial rate which is 180 kyat per unit of electricity so the residents of the Golden City Condo, etc have been suffering this wicked ripoff unfairly.
This is an unacceptable ripoff for the condo residents as they are too home users.
So from this ripoff, the future of Myanmar can be predicted accurately which is Myanmar would be getting poorer and poorer because ripoff is not what the rich would accept as they would run to foreign countries where there is no unfair ripoff just like in Myanmar and then Myanmar properties would be worth nothing a few years from now on.

Though condo developers are granted permissions but not only electricity but also water and road are not provided by the government so the condo developers have to dig the underground water to provide water to the condo residents expensively but road pavement done by the condo developers are stopped by the corrupt YCDC deliberately though no whatsoever support is provided by them but only conspiring to rip off bribe from the condo developers with whatever dishonest methods they think stupidly.

Corruption by the Yangon YCDC is beyond reason and acceptibility so most condo developers have given up Myanmar and go to Pakistan for condo development instead.

Indian in Myanmar are the most greedy, dishonest and stingy people comparing to the most generous Indian in Malaysia.

The price of the mutton curry of the Indian restaurants in Myanmar is not only more expensive than Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but also the amount of mutton is extremely few too at the Indian restaurans in Yangon, Myanmar such as at the Golden City Chetty Restaurant, Shwe Mingalar Indian Restaurant, etc where 4 very, very tiny pieces of mutton + rice, etc are provided for about whopping 4900 kyat unbelievably, which is much more than the current daily minimum wage, 4800 kyat of Myanmar) and the amount of mutton as merely as a quarter comparing to the amount of mutton at the generous Indian restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It's time to severely regulate and monitor the rip-off Indian restaurants in order to completely stop this despicable food rip-off businesses in Myanmar or else Myanmar is going to be shamed as a ripoff country on the international stage instead of the real culprit shameless, rip-off Indian restaurants in Myanmar.

Myanmar is the most shameless rip-off country led by the well-known fake democracy icon Suu Kyi.

The Hyundai i20 car is just 6.79 lakh Rupees in India but the price of the older model Hyundai i10 in Myanmar is currently priced for 12.96 lakh Rupees in Myanmar.
So the car price in Myanmar is kind of double expensive comparing to India.
So the foreign investors should stay away from this outrageous rip-off of the shameless Myanmar government.

Everything in Myanmar starts with rip-off and ends with rip-off.
And it has already proved the cases of many rip-off in Myanmar to the extent of forcing many foreign investors especially the owners of many factories in Myanmar to run away leaving behind their whole factories which leaves the foreign investors with nothing but broken life so it's kind of warning to all foreign investors that investing in Myanmar would destroy their lives.

Unlike in other countries, land in Myanmar can be bought only for leasthold (leasthold is kind of long-term renting with no whatsoever ownership of the land) and after few years, the rip-off Myanmar government shall take back all land along with all the property on the land so all foreign investors should not invest for the leasthold trap of the rip-off Myanmar government.

Civil wars are ongoing in many regions accross Myanmar and no one can guarantee when the armies of other races would attack Yangon and so on so investment in Myanmar is extremely risky for foreign investors unless civil wars accross Myanmar are ended for good.

India is leading the world as the top rubbish leader in spreading the coronavirus.

Instead of seeking the right parter, the unsophisticated undertaker Suu Kyi foolishly chose India.

So the intention of the unsophisticated undertaker Suu Kyi must be questioned seriously now as to leading Myanmar towards the similar cursed fate of India or else who is going to take responsibility for the out of control massive deaths in Myanmar in the next few months from the misleading of the proved top rubbish India?

Myanmar needs a reliable partner in order to contain the coronavirus successfully.

Even if China were not Myanmar's choice, the proved top rubbish India should never be trusted for salvation in Myanmar so Myanmar should immediately abandon the proved top rubbish India and choose a reliable partner from among countries which have proved to contain the coronavirus successfully.

The international well-known democracy-liar Suu Kyi abused her power again to win the vote of farmers by declaring to purchase 20 billions kyat worth of just-harvested paddy and also to pay 10% more above the market price on all the paddy purchase.

Currently the price of 100 baskets of the just-harvested paddy is 470,000 kyat but the Suu Kyi government abused the government fund to set the price to 520,000 kyat, 10% above the market price, this is clearly a manipulation of the market price for which Suu Kyi should be jailed for the power abuse and the treason on all people.

Rice price has been excessively raised many time under the leadership of the culprit Suu Kyi, consequently people have been suffering terrible inflation unlike never seen before.

"Out of control epidemic" are located at only 2 places in US and India.

Myanmar is unfortunately bordering to the most deadly India.

So Myanmar has to immediately not only completely close all the border gates to India and impose death penalty for officers allowing illegal trading at the borders but also to completely close all unofficial shortcut routes leading between Myanmar and India just like what the Thailand has been completely attempting to close all illegal entry loopholes between Thailand and Myanmar.

All flights from US and India should also be banned landing in Myanmar unconditionally in order to prevent the coronavirus from further spreading in Myanmar.

All imports from India, especially the food, etc has to be diagnosed to see if any stain of coronavirus were included in food or not.

Or else all the current efforts to contain the virus locally might be useless and unpractical for Myanmar without pinpointing the source of the real spreader immediately and then the situation even might be out of control just like India in the next few months without eliminating the culprit spreader.

Transportation department announced to cease its whole operation and service temporarily starting from 14th this month.

It's not necessary to cease its service and operation but just need to follow the strict procedure of coronavirus prevention.

"No work, no pay" practical policy must to be applied to the government workers too as demanded recently by the chairman of the garment employer association.

Or else is it fair for the tax payers to feed the freeloading government workers like the lazy, useless minister and his accomplices of the transportation department.

If they insisted to not work using the excuse of the coronavirus, they should all be fired immediately and no worry there are millions and millions of qualified people who would work even for free as long as food is provided because the millions are starving due to poverty and no job.

The transportation department is an essential service that people need for taking the test of driving license and so on so the transportation department must never be closed even for temporarily until the democracy government exists no more.

The monthly salary of all government workers higher than or equal to 2 millions kyat must be reduced by at least half immediately to reflect the current very bad situation.

The president should be responsible for the rampant crimes committed by the 20,000 prisoners he released few months ago on his reckless presidential pardon during the coronavirus epidemic without considering the consequences of his reckless release of criminals. No wonder the president is the enabler of all rampant crimes all people are suffering unnecessarily now.

No one in Myanmar history is as dishonest as Aung San Suu Kyi.

Over 50% of electricity in Myanmar is produced with hydropower plants and it just costs 12 kyat per unit of electricity but the greatest thief Suu Kyi skyrocketed the electricity price from 50 kyat per unit to 125 kyat per unit few months ago, raising at least whopping 150%, the greatest thievery in Myanmar history under the greatest thief Suu Kyi unlike never seen before.
Myanmar is a gas producer country but the gas price in Myanmar is also much much more expensive than all the surrounding countries surprisingly.
Now both electricity price and gas price in Myanmar are very expensive now, even much more than the world's second largest economy China so how Myanmar people can afford to cook a meal at home or is the thief Suu Kyi encouraging and forcing the Myanmar people to end their life out of enormous expense pressure by inhumanely raising the electricity price by at least 150%?

Yangon restaurant food prices are getting much more expensive and more expensive than Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, etc now under the leadership of the rubbish Suu Kyi administration.
It's indeed an endless woe and tragedy to all the Myanmar people whose minimum income is much less than aforementioned richer countries above by at least 200% so it's not absolutely unfair for all the Myanmar people to spend more money for restaurant food in Yangon comparing to the aforementioned richer countries above.
Thanks to the rubbish government led by the wicked Suu Kyi who allows the enormous ripoff accross the Yangon restaurants without punishment for rip-off price unlike the Malaysia where the restaurant food and drink price are monitored and controlled around the clock for the interest of its people, etc

The income tax which is never practised in all other foreign countries because it's a fraud and the purpose of income tax is to add an additional unfair tax on top of other already existed taxes upon spending money with no tax collection history for purchase of car, land, property, etc.
Instead of abolishing the unfair income tax upon becoming the leader in Myanmar, the thief Suu Kyi simply skyrocketed the unfair income tax instead from the original 3% to 15%, raising whopping 400%.

The duty of importing a car in US is as much as free but the combined duty and complicated tax for importing a car in Myanmar is as high as 150% of the value of the car,
Even paying 150% for the combined duty and complicated tax for importing a car is not enough as there is no license issued for Yangon and the Yangon license can be purchased separately for a whopping 10,000 US dollar
Thanks to the most wicked Suu Kyi for skyrocketing the import duty and tax as well as banning of issuing Yangon license for all imported cars and shamelessly selling the Yangon car license as a fraudster

Suu Kyi is abhorred internationally for well cheating of the whole world as the true democracy icon for over 2 decades unlike never seen before in history so she is no longer welcomed even in her husband's country called English and all of her many international democracy awards have been stripped completely throughout the world except the Nobel award which wasn't stripped because Nobel award has no strip policy but no one in the Nobel committee endorse her anymore so it would be the most shameless for Suu Kyi to abuse and associate the Nobel award to her name because she is nothing more than a liar and not worthy of the Nobel reward. Myanmar is so unlucky to have the most fake democracy pretender like Suu Kyi.

And even until now Suu Kyi doesn't even spare Myanmar, the last country where people still accept her but she still doesn't repent and commits all kind of evils upon all innocent Myanmar people especially upon the poor people so the day all Myanmar people realizes of the evil natures of Suu Kyi and then Suu Kyi might have no escape but to live the rest of her life as a disgraceful fugitive or a prisoner.

Yangon government under the corrupt chief minister has turned Yangon into a scammer heaven now where endless ripoff spreading across the city to the extent that Thailand, Malaysia, India, etc are cheaper than the rip-off Yangon now.

Not only expensive but crimes are also rampant too and out of control in Yangon unlike never seen before such as burglaries, pickpockets, etc (pickpocket on almost on every bus, 3 apartments suffered burglary at the same time at Lanmadaw downtown, Yangon on the day before yesterday, etc) since over 20,000 criminals were released recently on the pardon of the current disgraceful president.

Furthermore, taking advantage of the non-performing Yangon government under the wasteful chief minister, a scammer even dares to abuse loadspeaker openly to help collect and pay for electricity bill where bill payment in Myanmar is inconvenient unlike other foreign countries, can't still be paid with automatic deduction through bank account but only can be paid at the office of electricity, just like Myanmar is still in a stone age era though Myanmar run the fastest for rip-off in the world history since 2010 for skyrocketing of property price (now comparable to New York, US, unbelievable Myanmar for being as merely as a beggar in reality though with no whatsoever success achievement in economy unlike Malaysia, Thailand, etc until so far since opening up in 2010, but shamelessly dare to play skyrocketing with nothing of achievement and then consequently play to death might be the final destination for Myanmar !!!), hotel room price, meal price, visa price, atm withdrawal fee, electricity price, Yangon car license tax, alcohol tax, car import duty, rice export duty, appliance import tax, rent tax, hostel tax, even adding the world's first tax called income tax which is targeted for all money with no tax collection history, etc

Many people in Myanmar make a living for free surprisingly by becoming monks unlike never seen before in all other countries.

Monks from Japan, China and Korea have to work hard for a living unlike the freeloading Myanmar monks.

Unlike the monks from other aforementioned countries above, the Myanmar monks have been disturbing all Myanmar people without rest as long as there is daylight using all kind of abuse method for donation request and indeed the usual abuse of the loudspeaker by the monks is the most unbearable one.

It's time to control and stop the immoral monks from abusing loudspeaker shamelessly everywhere immediately so that quality life would be returned to all Myanmar people and the responsibility absolutely lies with the current income-tax-monster government which has been collecting taxes heavily and unreasonably from all Myanmar people without working for all Myanmar people in area of regarding the endless disturbance from the shameless free-loading monks.

Most Myanmar people dies in Myanmar due to the oversupply of salt in their body.

Thanks to the sick Myanmar government which commits all crimes in order to earn money even in inhumane manner unlike all other foreign countries.

Myanmar government greedily sells butcher license at an extremely expensive price to many businesses in Myanmar and Myanmar government also allows them to inject the salt water into meat.

In order to recoup for the heavenly expensive butcher license price, the butcher businesses simply inject salt water into meat as much as or more than 100% unhealthy salty water so it's no wonder to see meat swelling like a shining meat ball in the market unlike never seen before in all other countries.

Injection of salt water into meat is the main root cause of almost all sickness emerging from in Myanmar which consequently causes the death of most people in Myanmar so the current Suu Kyi government has an undeniable responsibility for causing almost all sickness and deaths coming from oversupply of salt in their body by deliberately allowing the inhumane butcher businesses to inject unhealthy salt water into meat.

Labour union is out of touch to the reality in Myanmar that they merely represent 16% of the total population in Myanmar but dare to challenge politics by participating in election in order to manipulate and raise wage excessively without considering higher wage would discourage foreign investments as once happened in 2018 due to the skyrocketing of salary by 33%.

Labour union should control its greed and should also consider the remaining 84% population who have no job.

Local job creation is not strong enough to provide job for everyone so urgently need foreign investments to create jobs but wage is the key criteria of foreign investments in Myanmar and low wage is the attraction Myanmar need to win foreign investments.

Or else allowing the foolish labour union to raise wage by 50% every 2 years and then Myanmar wage should be the highest in Asia in a few years and then even the existing investments in Myanmar would sooner or later run to other low-wage labour countries such as Vanezuela, Bangladesh, India, etc where the wage of all these countries are much lower than the current minimum wage in Myanmar now.

So the no-brainer labour union is clearly sabotaging the labour market to collapse by attempting to skyrocket the wage by 50% every 2 years which would consequently drive out even most of the current existing investments in Myanmar.

Before it's too late to prevent from collapsing the labour market in Myanmar, the culprit labour union must be outlawed and banned immediately to provide more job opportunities to all population including the remaining 84% current jobless population in Myanmar

Myanmar is really a rip-off land where the greatest rip-off is coming from the current thief government itself led by the most fake democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Nissan Sunny car is made in Myanmar and Myanmar is much poorer than Thailand so the Nissan Sunny car produced in Myanmar should be cheaper than the similar Nissan Sunny car made in Thailand.
No, you're wrong !
The Myanmar-made Nissan Sunny car is outrageously more expensive than the Thailand-made Nissan Sunny car.

The Nissan Sunny car is 0.5 million baht in Thailand but in Myanmar, it costs about a whopping 0.66 million bath or about 28.8 millions kyat so it is at least 30 percent ((0.16/0.5)*100) more expensive in Myanmar than Thailand.

Everything is so unfair under the misleading of this hypocrite Suu Kyi who endlessly burdens everyone in Myanmar beyond acceptability, logic and reason.

Now everyone in Myanmar has to pay an extra income tax of 15% unfairly which is kind of advance payment of income tax, logically stupid and unreasonable and is never heard of in foreign countries or it may be silimar to a slave tax while slave system was not yet abolished before.
Yes, you need to pay an extra income tax of 15% for purchasing a car or a property or everything in Myanmar.
The extra income tax is indeed a slave tax initiated under only by the most fake and corrupt democracy system in Myanmar.

Probably for the calculation of election coming this year by the corrupt Suu Kyi, the income tax is temporarily reduced to 3% until the end of September this year deliberately but the outrageous 15% income tax is coming back on October this year.

The fake democracy in Myanmar is unreliable because it's full of unfairness and excessively burdening the people to bill the government's excessive wasting.
The government should not target people for money extraction and instead should target money extraction from all the natural resources which are more than enough to support both the government and all the people.

What is the difference between Aung San Suu Kyi and beggar?
Is Suu Kyi better than a beggar?

Recently there are groups of beggars singing on the street begging for food frequently.

Thanks to the worse than a beggar, the wasteful Suu Kyi harming the interest of all the Myanmar people.

The most foolish Suu Kyi is happy to raise the salary as well as the price of rice and everything even including the price of restaurant menu without considering the impact behind her foolish action.

With the biyearly rate of salary raising which amount at least 33% as done by Suu Kyi foolishly in 2016, it's predictable the salary in Myanmar would be the highest in a few years due to the policy of biyearly salary adjustment arrangement as well as allowing the labour union to bully investors at will for endless demands without law and order so wise foreign investors abandons all investments altogether in Myanmar straight away since 2016, considering the long-term interest instead of short-term interest, all thanks to the greedy Suu Kyi for raising the salary by 33% in 2016.

Suu Kyi is not up for the job to serve the Myanmar people because she is out of touch to the reality and enjoy her life lavishly now comparing to before becoming the current government worker unlike the Myanmar people in poverty without job.

The current president of Suu Kyi's choice is a joke as the president abuses power unlike the previous much better president.

Recently there was a news regarding a robbery in a village in Mulay, Sagaing where one of the robber or the leader of the robbers was the person who was released 4 months ago on this foolish president's pardon.

Pardoning and releasing thousands of prisoners during this epidemic by the president is the most foolish, imprudent action without considering of no more hiring at outside for the released prisoners to find jobs for survival during this epidemic so the president is absolutely responsible to compensate all sufferings encountered by the Myanmar people due to the foolish president's pardoned prisoners.

This president still wants to insist on approving on the corruption of free car import license for government workers until now where his share of the free car import license is worth 150 millions kyat.

The no-brainer Suu Kyi did it again to raise the daily minimum wage of poorest people involving in the countryside development programme (cash for work programme) to 8000 kyat or 67% salary raising from the current daily minimum wage of 4800 kyat.

Even the poorest people in the countryside in Myanmar are reaping 8000 kyat for the daily minimum wage so there would be a disaster consequence from the city dwellers to follow the trend to demand 20000 kyat for the daily minimum wage sooner or later and then the wage in Myanmar would be higher than China very soon and then the worst consequence would follow as all investments in Myanmar would no longer be sustainable due to the unacceptable high labour wage to the extent of collapsing, closing and shifting most of investments to other labour-cheaper destinations such as Vanezuela (daily minimum wage in Vanezuela is just 1300 kyat), Bangladesh, India, etc and then starvation and deaths would follow to spread across Myanmar uncontrollably. So Myanmar would officially become the most unsustainable and dangerous destination for investments for foreigners from then on.

The daily minimum wage in Vanezuela and India are 1300 kyat and 3600 kyat respectively, which are 269% and 33% respectively lower than the current daily minimum wage of Myanmar which is 4800 kyat so it's no wonder most foreign businesses have been selecting India, Bangladesh, etc for investments since the no-brainer Suu Kyi has been sabotaging all the cheap advantage and cheap attraction of Myanmar for foreign investors since 2016 so Myanmar is currently being misled dangerously by the out of touch British mother, the utmost foolish Suu Kyi.

Myanmar beggar labour union has been greedily demanding to raise wage dangerously by at least 50% every 2 years so investments in Myanmar are absolutely unsustainable unless the beggar labour union is dismantled immediately as well for good.

The period of the countryside development programme is just from 3 months to 6 months which is clearly not to help the countryside people but just to cheat all votes from countrysides for the upcoming election which is just about 4 months way from now on. Shameless cheating after cheating !!!

The worst consequences of this imprudent scheme of this countryside development are that by raising the minimum wage by 67% which would consequently skyrocket the hyperinflation again everywhere in Myanmar resulting most people would face difficulties of higher price for everything as well as after the end of the countryside development plan, there would be unrest throughout the countryside because with the end of the countryside development plan, there is no way to find any work which pay as much as 8000 kyat per day anymore in the countryside, inconsiderably unsustainable !!!

Without careful handling, this might instigate an all-out revolution in the countryside through the unrest created by the troublemaker Suu Kyi through her no-brainer selfish countryside development programme because people in countryside would no longer be content with low pay after the end of the countryside development programme.

Suu Kyi is clearly a traitor who has been creating troubles after troubles for all Myanmar people to seek her own interests above the Myanmar people since being released from prison.

The future of Myanmar would be completely destroyed if this most selfish Suu Kyi and her corrupt NLD party continues to manipulate the country affairs so they should be expelled immediately once and for all from involving in politics in order to prevent from creating more unnecessary troubles for all Myanmar people endlessly.
Simply traitor Suu Kyi is fitted for nowhere except her former prison.

Suu Kyi and NLD should be investigated for the corruption of massive wealth accumulation and also the reason behind China's massive donations to her foundation, etc. And also investigate to see whether or not it's legal for her corrupt NLD party to collect 25% from the government salary of all the NLD members which NLD party is well known to abuse power to only or mostly employ its own NLD members in the government to the extent of rejecting the votes from state to select its own state chief minister because a chief minister earns the NLD party 0.75 million kyat a month from the 3 millions monthly salary of the chief minister, the millions salary for government employee which is beyond word and out of touch to the reality of the very poor Myanmar country now.

Suu Kyi is the most corrupt politician who lied earlier during the election race last time to not accept any land offer from the government but recently a news confirmed that the corrupt Suu Kyi accepted 400 square feet of land (400 x 400 feet) which is equivalent to a combination of 66 plots of normal 40 x 60 feet where normally 2 families share a plot.

Continuing with this unfair and corrupt policy of rewarding enormous land to each 4-year government, people have no future in Myanmar anymore so all rewardings such as land, free car import license, etc and unnecessary salary raising in government must be banned immediately for fairness to the people who elected the current dishonest government in 2016.

Instead of investigating the corruption of the Yangon chief minister, Suu Kyi abuse the power of her corrupt NLD party to vote against the accusation in the parliament. The Yangon chief minister was also the one being accused of corruption earlier before in news for wearing 0.1 million US dollar watch and claimed the watch was a gift from someone.

Yangon region where the cheif minister manipulates has been backsliding where until now water is not clean where there are lots of stains and dirts in the pipe water, electricity bill payment has to be made at the office where no online payment or bank transfer is not yet accepted until now, Yangon car license is not issued for imported car, 80% of land are confiscated for area selected for development plan, no freehold for all Yangon apartments which don't even have a lease hold unlike in UK because land owner still claims ownership of the land where apartment building was built and collects monthly land rent from the apartment owners unfairly which is clearly the model of a beggar country.

The price of restaurants in Yangon is more expensive than Bangkok, Thailand though the income in Bangkok is 200% higher than Yangon.
So it's unfair for the people in Yangon to spend more money for food for the money they don't have from their earning.
A set meal of chicken+vegetable+rice in the 7eleven 24hr convenient stores is just 32 baht in Bangkok which is equivalent to 1429 kyat.

So Yangon urgently needs a capable, uncorrupted, 24hr hardworking chief minister to urgently adjust and control the price of everything such as the price of raw meat, vegetable, rice, milk, olive oil, rent, property, restaurant menu, hotel room, hostel room, food related items including for packaging, etc where everything must be adjusted and controlled based on the minimum wage for affordability and foreign meat firms which can produce and sell meat cheaper than the local greedy firms must be invited immediately to invest in Yangon by the government to return fairness and to benefit the people in Yangon who are burdened with the living cost due to the greedy local meat firms, the priority of the people in Yangon should be always above the greedy, lawless local meat firms so that people in Yangon should be able to afford food outside with their minimum wage very soon.

According the the department of electricity, the cost to produce one unit of electricity by hydropower plant is just 12 kyat and 54% of all electricity in Myanmar is currently produced by hydropower plants.

Just cost 12 kyat to produce per unit of electricity but charging 125 kyat per unit of electricity to consumer is the greatest scam ever recorded under any government in Myanmar so Suu Kyi has officially become the greatest scammer in the current fake democracy government where she violated the Constitution to stay above the law and the president shamelessly with the help of Kalar.

All the better achievement and justice of the true way of democracy under the previous government have been suppressed and destroyed by Suu Kyi's fake democracy dead-end which surprised not only the Myanmar people but also the whole world where Suu Kyi even disrespectfully profaned the world view upon her fake democracy doctrine as if in the name of protecting Myanmar but actually not as everyone in Myanmar is well aware of her hypocrisy and also expecting only for the worst from her hypocrisy to not only destroy the remaining hope of democracy in Myanmar but to turn Myanmar people into slaves starting by series of unfair actions one after another under her mismanagement such as raising the electricity fee by whopping 180% recently, imposing the combined taxes of both duty and tax for car import to as much as 150% (1.5 times of the price of car being imported), banning Yangon car license for imported car, imposing the hostel tax where the poor stay by 13%, raising the transaction tax of all business such as property, car, etc from 3% to 15% but currently rolled back to 3% just for 1 year until September this year seemingly to help with her dishonest re-election plan before the end of this year, rewarding herself of free car import license shamelessly while all Myanmar people are heavily burdened with the heaviest 150% import tax while she no need to a single cent for importing a car worthing as much as 0.15 billions or 150 millions kyat unreasonably, etc

It was hard under the military rule but it is harder now to survive under the terrible mismanagement of Suu Kyi to the extent of missing the better life under the military rule where food was abundant and cheap such as beef with cattle export ban under the umbrella protection of the military, the property price was a hundred times cheaper than now

At this late hour around 8PM, begger family roaming a street nearby begging for food while shouting they're hungry, are you hungry now, Suu Kyi?

Thanks to Suu Kyi's arrogant manner of raising salary 3 years ago by whopping 30% unlike never seen before in any country and consequently most foreign investors abandoned Myanmar and went to other countries for investments since then.

Not that Myanmar people are greedy but Suu Kyi who is out of touch to the reality in Myanmar and not caring to secure jobs at all cost for all the unfortunate who, the poor would be happy to earn 1,000 kyat daily as long as there is a job to feed them so no more suffering of destitute being encountered now but the problem is that there is no job for everyone now already.

Since democracy started in Myanmar, the salary of president, vice president, chief minister are above unreasonable 3 millions kyat to up to 5 millions kyat which is even higher than the salary of China president.

With higher salary, their spending power is strong enough to the extent of not caring food price scamming where price has been raising all the time against the reality logic of Myanmar which consequently harm the interest of the working class where most of them receive less than the daily minimum wage.
Consequently, the living expenses in Yangon is higher than Kuala Lumpur now where all Malaysian have their meals at cheap restaurants whereas all Myanmar people bring their lunchbox from home. Restaurants in Myanmar are unregulated unlike Malaysia so cheap restaurants of Myanmar have always been raising the food price shamelessly to the extent of surpassing food price of Malaysia now and also the amount of food and meat portions is merely half of what offers in Malaysia, a double rip-off and they are lucky for being in Myanmar where the Yangon chief minister ignored his responsibility of regulating restaurant food price throughout his tenure or else if they were in Malaysia, they would be certainly punished badly where justice prevails and you can find news on how Malaysia severely punished restaurants which raised the price of food and drink even just a little amount.

To understand the reality in Myanmar, the salary of president, vice president, chief minister should be adjusted to be less than 0.5 million kyat altogether, the lesser the better or else they would be blind always as they are now out of touch of the reality.

They should understand that the government position is not to make them rich but to sacrifice for the people but look at what they've done to the suffering of the people now, blame their unreasonable high salary which makes them out of touch to the reality in Myanmar.

If they want to get rich, they should seek other rewarding careers outside but not the government jobs which should be always much much lower than the outside to support the ongoing reality around the clock or else what is the government for?

There are lots of brighter successful people outside who love this nation to the extent of not willing to take anything from this nation, no bribe, no government salary, nothing at all but just to sacrifice their lifetime learning for the better future of the nation while well taking care of and seeking justice for the need of the society by applying necessary actions such as correcting rent so rent goes down by half (property price across Myanmar is out of reality and urgently require for correction to return dignity life back to Myanmar people while severely punishing property manipulators and freehold should be provided instead of leasehold for property ownership as Myanmar is no longer under British rule) so restaurant food more affordable by half consequently, etc
Is Suu Kyi and NLD up for the job of sacrifice?

Myanmar is the poorest country but Myanmar population are being scammed openly and ripped off unfairly by the current shameless fake democracy government.

There is no whatsoever justice for the Myanmar population until now and for what purpose the hypocrite Suu Kyi is still pretending as a savior in Myanmar unlike on the international stage where she has already become a notorious pirah and the disgraced from the darling of the west since her true color of fake democracy doctrine has been revealed worldwide.

Myanmar has no job to offer now on top of million of Myanmar workers returning from foreign countries who lost their job recently due to the coronavirus.

Minimum wage is to target to the foreign factories in Myanmar but since most foreign factories have been closed due to the coronavirus so is it necessary to sustain the obsolete minimum wage? If so, there is no way the Myanmar factories are going to be able to afford the outrageous minimum wage so the expensive minimum wage is going to destroy the current faltering economy of Myanmar to a complete shutdown.

Useless people like U Win Zaw of the National Committee who proposed raising the minimum wage racklessly by around 50% this year, is harmful to the development of the future of Myanmar so rackless people like U Win Zaw, Suu Kyi who racklessly raised 30% of the minimum wage in 2016 as well as raised the electricity price by 180% in 2019, etc should be fired instantly to prevent harming the future of the nation by their rackless actions again.

The best solution is to reduce the minimum wage to less than the minimum wage of India where the minimum wage of India is 3,600 kyat per day or to beat all competition is to equal the minimum wage to Venezuela where its minimum wage of Venezuela is around 1,320 kyat per day.

To survive is to beat all competition by copying the minimum wage of Venezuela by setting the minimum wage to 1,320 kyat per day so that all jobs in Asia would be transferred to Myanmar to benefit more than 50% of jobless Myanmar population or else starvation is waiting for Myanmar unlike never seen before as foreign factories are closing one after another non-stop and no new job whatsoever is available anymore and millions of Myanmar people who traditionally rely on job offers from abroad no longer work as factories are shutting down massively at abroad too.

The consequence of the rackless Suu Kyi approving the proposal of raising wage from the another rackless U Win Zaw will not only not create job but only multiply beggars unlike never seen before throughout the street in Myanmar.

People here are without job and then why the rice price here is still 300% more expensive than Cambodia where 2 kg or 1 Phyi of high quality rice is just 500 kyat, whereas Paw San rice in Myanmar is at least 2,000 kyat per 2 kg. Is Myanmar so much richer than Cambodia to result rice price in Myanmar to be 300% much more expensive outrageously ? Does Suu Kyi have a brain to reason or is she simply a moron ?

Suu Kyi is the most dishonest scammer to all Myanmar people.

Suu Kyi said to give 150 units of electricity for free to every household on April.

But the amount of bill for April skyrocketed almost double comparing to the previous month, Mar bill so Suu Kyi should explain why this cheating is being encountered by all poor Myanmar people unreasonably.

Greedy Suu Kyi should be ashamed of grabbing money out of the pocket of Myanmar people by force by outrageously raising the electricity price by almost 150% and consequently the electricity price in Myanmar is higher than China by almost 50% now unlike never seen before throughout history.

Shameless Suu Kyi would be kicked out by all Myanmar people by the end of this year and then the succeeding government would return justice to Myanmar people by invalidating all injustice policies including the unfair raising of electricity price imposted by the tyranny Suu Kyi.

Suu Kyi should be with her foreign children in her husband's motherland, very rich England and should not be among poor Myanmar people to dig for gold along with her stupid NLD former-prisoners accomplices resulting all poor Myanmar people suffering endlessly due to her greed under her inhumane rule, Myanmar people are poor so Suu Kyi's greed doesn't work here and consequently Suu Kyi doesn't belong here but hope Suu Kyi returns justice to Myanmar people before going back to England by correcting the electricity price for the sake of fairness which should not be higher than China or else Suu Kyi and her descendants would be cursed by all Myanmar people for the rest of her life.

To profit from great expectation of foreign tourism since opening up Myanmar in 2011, the then Myanmar government wickedly skyrocketed restaurant food price and hotel price unlike never seen before resulting most Myanmar people not being able to afford restaurant food since then to until now unlike Malaysia where its minimum wage allows Malaysian to comfortably eat 3 meals a day at restaurant without any worry because Malaysia restaurant are very cheap with no tourist rip-off price unlike the cursed greedy Myanmar.

However, since the epidemic of the coronavirus, there is no more foreign tourist in Myanmar but the skyrocketed tourist rip-off price for restaurant food and hotel room still remains unfortunately where Myanmar people has to burden the the skyrocketed tourist rip-off price to get essential restaurant food so it's not fair to maintain the skyrocketed tourist rip-off price in Myanmar since there is no more foreign tourist in Myanmar and consequently the price of restaurant food and hotel room should be localized as before 2010 to return affordability, fairness, justice to the Myanmar people.

Government should monitor restaurant not to earn more than 50% of its investment for the benefit of all parties including customer (more affordable restaurant food), government (earning more tax since consumer spend more on restaurant food) and restaurant owner (earn more on more orders not on higher rip-off price anymore) so that there is no reason the price of all restaurant food should be cheaper at least 50% immediately by government banning of restaurant not to profit more than 50% on investment in order to eradicate the tourist rip-off price.

63% (65/103) out of coronavirus infection from Yangon are coming from a culprit Christian pastor who are even shameless now during this epidemic to make fortune out of a religion.

Without the culprit pastor, there should be less 64 coronavirus infection from the Yangon region so it's time to outlaw all Christian pastors for the sake of national security so that no gathering shall be allowed anymore for religious purpose including all other religions. All outlawed pastors must be monitored around the clock and any pastor committing a crime of assembling more than 5 people should be arrested immediately.

Curfew is not helpful in Yangon because it's against the freedom of movement of democracy so people needing a hospital emergency during curfew are as good as dead now as well as it's unreasonable to ban people going to the 24hr convenient store in the middle of the night for their need while stray dogs and stray cats which can spread the coronavirus dangerously, can roam freely everywhere unreasonably in Yangon around the clock.

Instead of curfew (curfew must be removed), wearing a mask should be more than sufficient to prevent the spreading of coronavirus but government must support washable cotton masks to be available cheaply everywhere in Yangon as this is the most effective weapon against the coronavirus spreading and government must also remind all people everywhere to wear mask to prevent coronavirus infection.

Air conditioner must be switched off for all the city buses and taxies and a ventilator must be installed on each City bus and each taxi to ensure no coronavirus infecting happening on the city buses and taxies and the forehead temperature must be measured for each passenger by the driver to ensure no sick passenger mingles among the rest of others.

The forehead temperature of all city bus drivers and taxi drivers must be measured at least daily by the government to ensure no spreading of the coronavirus from the drivers to the whole city or else the consequences are unimaginable.

Any taxi driver without following a government order of daily forehead temperature checking should be arrested and a subsequent arrest should confiscate the taxi in order to instill fear for the sake of national security.

25,000 prisoners were released on today due to a pardon from the Myanmar president is the greatest mistake ever done during this Spanish flu epidemic called coronavirus where the first victim of the Spanish flu was originated from Kansas, US because what those whopping 25,000 prisoners are able to achieve at outside (where there is no honest job available now due to the Spanish flu epidemic called coronavirus) are unimaginable to what are going to happen such as murdering, robbing, raping, etc.

Since the prisoners' release is due to the pardon from the president, the president has the absolute responsible to answer to all future crimes going to be committed by any of the 25,000 prisoners released today.

5 millions monthly salary of the president might not be enough to compensate the future crimes which are going to be committed by the 25,000 prisoners released today.

Since Myanmar have a president, why Myanmar wastes more salary for Suu Kyi or else another solution should be that the president position should be removed while Suu Kyi is the head of the government to save the 5 millions monthly salary wasting for the president position.

The Myanmar president is great because in less than a week after visiting India by the president, India announced to close all the India border gates next to Myanmar at the time while the epidemic was not that severe.

Since the 25,000 prisoners have been released, the government should allocate a budget of approximately 60 billions annually = ((25,000 x 200,000) x 12) to monitor all the individual prisoner in order to ensure people are not suffering any crime due to any of the released 25,000 prisoners or else government might have to compensate more for the crimes going to be committed by any of the 25,000 prisoners so the government has to be very prudent with whatever action it take.

Instead of offering the unfair free car import licenses to the government officials as instructed by this corrupt president recently, the import duty should be reduced from probably the absolutely unreasonable and unacceptable 100% to the same rate as the US where car importing duty is merely from no dutiable fee to 2.4%. This government corruption is already beyond reason, fairness and justice.

Even the raw beef is injected with water like a balloon lawlessly at the Chanmyae market, Pazundaung, Yangon.

The similar scam with pork is not taken care earlier almost 2 or 3 years ago by the useless Yangon chief minister resulting the scam spreading to the raw beef now, unbelievable !

It is time to investigate scams and corruption of the Yangon chief minister so as not to repeat vileness in Yangon and consequently Yangon may no longer need the unhelpful Yangon chief minister immediately and consequently save 3 millions kyat every months from paying salary to the wasteful Yangon chief minister.

50 billions kyat of social security fund should be allocated to suppress the inflation to alleviate and lower the living cost of millions of jobless people including the hundreds of thousand of people who recently lost their jobs due to the coronavirus.
However, the NLD regime abused the social security fund usage and instead allocated it to lend to local businesses without considering of plight of the people suffering under coronavirus.

No democracy is as fake as the one created by Suu Kyi.
The initial inspiration of Suu Kyi was to support the people against corrupt government servants.
However, when the Suu Kyi gained power, people are being burdened unkindly one after another, heavier tax, heavier inflation, skyrocketed electricity fee, etc while the corrupt government servents left behind by the military regime are well treated above the people, with pay already been raised twice under Suu Kyi government (the pay raise of the first time was accomplished after Suu Kyi borrowed money from Western country, unbelievably!), consequently the lowest salary of toilet cleaner in the government is now higher than the skilled garment worker now while the level of corruption in government now still maintains the same as before, not any better. Normally the pay in government should be always lower than outside or else it seems people have to work like cows or slaves to support the high salary of the corrupt government kings and queens.

Electricity price was unreasonably raised as much as 180% recently comparing to the previous Thein Sein government in order to support the selfish undertaker Suu Kyi to realize her dream of providing as much as the full coverage of the whole nation from only 30% of coverage previously.
Is it fair to rip off all people unfairly in Myanmar for using electricity under NLD so that with the rip-off earning, the undertaker Suu Kyi can waste endless building of gas power generators to fulfill her unrealistic, wasteful dream.

Due to the mismanagement of NLD government, military is facing international lawsuits one after another for crime against humanity now.
If NLD government were a bit maintaining its original democracy inspiration and persuaded and guided military for less extremity in advance, there would never be a Rohinga issue in Myanmar now.
With this Roginga issue, NLD should take responsibility for its mismanagement without playing a blame game against the military.

Pork on sale at the Latha market in Yangon is not like meat but instead like a balloon. The balloon pork is actually filled with water as much as 100% of its weight and the water is released after cooking the meat.
This cheating was not encountered under the previous Thein Sein government but only under the current NLD government.
The Yangon chief minister should take responsibility for ignoring this balloon pork scam for as much as for 4 years.

From no parking fee to a recent plan of collecting a parking fee of very expensive 500 kyat per hour is unreasonable and unacceptable.
Foolish NLD shouldn't allow its greed overtake the limit of local acceptance and the acceptable range should be from 50-200 kyat an hour of parking.
The motive is to reduce traffic congestion so places where there is no traffic congestion where the parking fee should not be collected consequently or else it would be too burdensome to survive in Yangon and consequently NLD would not be forgiven forever in Yangon.

Tyranny Suu Kyi government rewarding senior government servants such as ministers, etc and all servants working for more than 25 years with free car import licenses which worths about 50 millions kyat is not fair as no benefit was given to the people unfairly who did elect the current ungrateful Suu Kyi government.

The imported car price in Myanmar is as much as 116% more expensive than the international car price for the Brilliance V3 brand is absolutely unacceptable so this corruption of NLD should be investigated immediately once NLD is out of the office at the end of this year.

High class rice in Cambodia is just 17 cents per kg or 34 cents or 486 kyat per viss whereas the price in Myanmar is over 500% more expensive than Cambodia, thanks to the foolish NLD government raising the bottom price of rice for 2 time during the last 4 years.
Myanmar people are poorer than Cambodia people so Myanmar people desperately need military support to create an affordable rice price comparable to the rice price of Cambodia to benefit the poor people since the out of touch NLD government doesn't care the hardship of the people except its endless greed resulting of catering only the interest of foreign investors while ignoring its real duty to serve the interest of the people so inconveniences still insist in Yangon such as not allowing to pay utility bill through online, the back of the apartment building was filled with rubblish, rat, mosquito, etc which not being taken care since Thein Sein era, etc

Collecting 25% fee from the government salary of NLD members is questionable while the plight of unfortunate NLD members sacrifing in 88 are not looked after and ignored until now.

Millions of people in India are jobless now due to coronavirus so it is very unreasonable for Suu Kyi to request the garment factories to keep the employment of the workers while as much as 70% of all orders in Myanmar coming from EU were cancelled recently.
Instead in order to save the employment of garment worker in Myanmar, Suu Kyi should plead the EU not to cancel the orders from the garment factories of Myanmar or else is she really useless except squeezing the poor and helpless people in Myanmar to pay much more money for expensive electricity unfairly in Myanmar while electricity price in China is as much as 50% more cheaper than Myanmar now, reasonable ? Yes, reasonable should be the answer from the corrupt electricity department in Myanmar but hope Suu Kyi doesn't agree with the corrupt eventually and help restore justice of the electricity price for the sake of people soon.

Myanmar is now truely a rip-off land even for its own people.

A car like the BRILLIANCE V3 car was marketed with the price tag of 65,700 yuan or equivalent to US dollar 9,479.
But in Myanmar, the price of this same model car is 27.8 millions kyat or equivalent to US dollar 20,496.
So the BRILLIANCE V3 car is incredibly more expensive in Myanmar than any other countries all over the world by a whopping 116%.

(20,496 - 9,479 = 11,017 , 11,017 / 9,479 x 100 = 116%)

Where are justice and fairness for the people still being ripped off officially in Myanmar?

So NLD government should treat its own People with both justice and fairness by removing all of the rip-off pricing of all imported items across Myanmar immediately before handing over power at the end of this year.

High-quality rice price in Myanmar is a whopping 534% more expensive than Cambodia unfairly even though Myanmar is poorer than Cambodia in reality.

According to the news below, 1kg of high-quality frangrance rice in Cambodia is just 17 cents US dollar or equivalent to 243 kyat Myanmar per kg or 394 kyat per viss ( = 243 xx 1.62 ) whereas the price for 1 viss of high-quality Paw San rice in Yangon is almost 2500 kyat (2500 / 394 = 6.35 times)

Setting a minimum price for rice is like a communist country according to Cambodia Minister Hun Sen's speech below in the news and that is exactly what the current NLD government in Myanmar has been manipulating the rice market for a higher price unreasonably probably for at least twice during the previous 3 years, resulting higher inflation across Myanmar unpractically.

The following are excerpts from the Cambodia news;

"One producer told VOA that he now sells fragrant rice, a high-quality brand, for 700 riel (US$0.17) per kilogram"

"On December 26 2019, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen stressed that his government won’t intervene in 2020 to prop falling prices"

"Cambodia isn’t a “communist country,” he said in his December 26 2019 speech, while stating that “we could only make an appeal, but the market mechanism does not require the state to set the prices.”"

Here is Myanmar not England where Su Kyi had a family life before so to make changes here is to be a part of the reality here where people don't sense any meaningful contribution from Su Kyi until now except her twice meaningless raising of the salary to all government workers bountifully which are even higher than the wage of skilled garment worker at the bottom wage (where illiterate soldier at the bottom rank fetch higher wage than the skilled garment worker) , very unfair where most government workers still cause many difficulty to the people until now unless being bribed. So what is the use?

Probably a year ago, corrupt water department in Yangon collected each flat for 40,000 kyat in order to install a water meter and instead just installed 1 water meter for 4 flats to be shared among.
So look like 1 water meter cost a whopping 160,000 kyat (40,000 kyat x4) according to the water department.
Sharing 1 water meter among 4 flat is very inconvenient as one needs to engage with other flat owner unnecessarily to share the bill equally unlike before the current NLD government where we rarely see other flat owner or renter.
This corruption from the water department has to be resolved and 1 water meter should be installed for each flat as there is no fairness of water usage on sharing 1 water meter among many flats.
This unfairness happened only under the current NLD government so the person responsible for implementing this unfair water meter sharing should go to jail to appease the anger of people suffering under the stupidity of the culprit or else NLD might become the target of anger for corruption.

Utility bill payment in Yangon is still like ancient time and physically need to run to the ghost building to pay bill in cash.
So any improvement plan from Yangon government to facilitate the bill payment like any other country through bank reduction or so on?

Why are the importances in people's life not in the agendas of Yangon government ?
Like affordable food in restaurant menu ( no tourist rip-off menu price but the local price), affordable room in hotel ( no tourist rip-off price but the local price), corruption free government department where reporting corruption is bountifully rewarded anonymously to completely eliminate corruption in Myanmar, ID issuing department should be under the control of the reliable passport issuing department or else no ID is issued even after 20 years of application legally, very strange and shameful.

Gangster Ma Kyi Kyi Tun from the trade unions or labour union acted as if her Union was above the law and lawlessly gave an ultimatum to the employers of garment factories (as if employers are slaves) to work with her unions as if her Union is a master above government and employer according to the following excerpt from a news.

"Hlaing Tharyar Township’s employee representative Ma Kyi Kyi Tun from the Confederation of Trade Unions of Myanmar (CTUM) said: “It appears that some factories will close temporarily, providing certain compensation for employees. Employers must cooperate with trade unions.”"

Factories are closing one after another like 3 factories in a week recently mostly due to worker aggression such as endless strikes, unreasonable demands and so on which are 100% instigated by the labour Union or trade unions.
Even one factory was closed completely due to many strikes instigated by labour union and its employees were compensated and then the factory was opened again after few months with its former employees but the leader of the labour union was never employed again. It's so sad to see this factory wasted so much money, time and energy just to get rid of the troublemaker labour union.

So you see how terrible the labour Union or trade unions are to the development of Myanmar so the trade unions or labour union should be dismantled immediately before it's too late.

Myanmar would not be this lucky to see closed factories being reopened as in a case above because closed factories usually run to other countries where labour is cheaper than Myanmar by 30-50% such as Bangladesh, India, Vanezuela, etc as well as having a friendly environment where is no tourist rip-off price like in Myanmar where restaurant food is solely priced (tourist rip-off price) for tourist instead of the local resident so the local can't afford even 2 sets of cheapest meal at a cheap restaurant with their daily minimum wage.
Restaurant food at Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc are priced for the local instead of tourist rip-off price so these countries are much much cheaper than Myanmar and the food portion is also almost double, especially the meat portion so even tourist think restaurant food at very poor Myanmar is crazy expensive or not worthy comparing to many of the more developed Asia countries where the food price is cheaper than Myanmar.

Tourist rip-off price in Myanmar restaurant has more disadvantages than advantage such as the locals don't spend money at restaurants so less tax for the government and most tourist completely abandon visiting Myanmar due to famous tourist rip-off price practised across Myanmar such as restaurant, hotel, museum, Pagoda, etc. Offering local price to tourist will attract them much more than the tourist rip-off price currently being offered in Myanmar.

Anyway, tourist already bring much more benefit even before they come, which is by paying visa fee to the government. So in return, government should return justice to the tourist which I hope is not by offering a tourist rip-off price but by offering the local price in honesty, don't you think?

Hotel room in Yangon is small and worse than Kuala Lumpur but it is much more expensive than Kuala Lumpur as much as a 50-150% for the same size and quality.
According to news, the bottom price of hotel rooms in Myanmar is outrageously controlled not be be lower than a certain amount so government should also return justice to tourist by abolishing the price controlling of hotel room so that the hotel room price would return to where it was before in 2011 where an air-con room was 5000 kyat per night which the local could afford then comparing to now, unreasonable price to the extent of most local can'afford hotel room so date in the park and get pregnant too consequently.

According to the latest mandate from India in 2019, the daily minimum wage in India is just 178 rupee or equivalent 3600 kyat which is 33% lower than the daily minimum wage in Myanmar where the daily minimum wage is 4800 kyat.

The wage of Vanezuela is even much more cheaper than India and the monthly wage in Vanezuela is just 20 US dollar or equivalent to 29000 kyat or daily minimum wage is 29000/2=1320 kyat.

The labour union which was formed in 2010 is very active in the wrong way in Myanmar and creates lot of unnecessary troubles for both the government and the investers to the extent of many investees were forced to close its factories to flee to other countries for investment instead where no investers are threatened like in Myanmar by its nonproductive, lazy, greedy workers, especially the leaders from the labour union.
Don't understand the unholy motive of the labour Union aiming for a revolution to kick out all investers out of Myanmar.

Myanmar need more foreign investment to feed more unemployed people than pleasing the greedy useless leaders from the labour union who the useless leaders are unlike the government, very short-sighted, greedy and selfish without considering the remaining 35-45% population who have no stable job unlike like them. Creating trouble after trouble, less investment and even worse existing factories will close one after another due to the troublesome labour union.

Labour union is a curse to Myanmar so the labour union must be dismantled immediately for good for the future of Myanmar.

No country raises salary as much as 30% just like the current NLD government did.
It was just like yesterday of raising the salary by 30% and now the labour Union is outrageously demanding for a 100% salary raising by this year.
Increasing the salary will decrease factories or descreasing the salary will increase the factories.
Since more people urgently need job, making the right decision by the government is very important which should not absolutely please the selfish rubbish labour union but to the people without job, decreasing the salary by 30% which should amount exactly to the daily minimum wage in India should profit all people, certainly not the shitty labour union.

Though the out of touch Yangon government is useless by not localizing the daily minimum wage to food price even from the cheapest restaurants in Yangon where workers can't even afford 2 meals of the cheapest chicken curry meal set in Yangon restaurant with their minimum wage, nothing should be wrong about the minimum wage as long as its attractiveness encourages investment but the problem is the rip-off from the restaurants where we don't see the useless culprit Yangon government stopping ripoff from Yangon restaurant until now to localize the restaurant price so that workers should be able to afford food at cheap restaurant with their minimum wage.
Malaysia government is very kind to its people to the extent of punishing rip-off restaurants without mercy, the link below is an example from Malaysia.
"Malaysia eatery boss fined over 'expensive' iced Milo"
Meal and meat portion of a set meal in Yangon is very few which is as much as half of the portions in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia though the prices on both locations are almost the same so this is also a master rip-off from the Yangon restaurant, thanks to the messup management of unsophisticated Yangon government.
People should be first or else the Yangon government should be gone for merely functioning as a prison.
To function as an important city government, the welfare of people must be prioritized where affordability is a virtue to people so food price across Yangon restaurants must be regidly forced to remove the rip-off menu price and the menu price must be based on less than 100% of the profit taking so a curry set meal in Yangon restaurant should be between 1300-1750 from the current outrageous 3000-4000 kyat.
High rent also contributes to higher food price in restaurants and since Myanmar is a poor country and high rent is out of touch to reality, government must adjust appropriate rent for restaurant to benefit affordability to Yangon resident.
No company should be under government just like what Yangon government does so Yangon government should close its company and instead does its real job focusing on the welfare and virtue of its people
