Around 219000 people stay displaced in Shan, Kachin and Arakan : UNOCHA

Some 219,000 people remain displaced across Shan, Kachin and Arakan states according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), with a further 307,000 affected by conflict.

The UN agency’s latest humanitarian bulletin highlights the plight of displaced persons in northern Arakan State who are still living in makeshift shelters as the monsoon approaches. Displaced residents have raised concerns over the government’s plans for 13 “model villages” in the area, according to the report, saying the size and location would prevent them from continuing their old livelihoods.

The plan for “model villages” is undoubtedly a shrewd plot hatched by Burmese government only to suppress Rohingya Muslims in all possible way.
