Press Advisory: Burma Centre Delhi urges Prime Minister of India for Restoration of Peace and Justice in Burma

By Burma Centre Delhi  •  May 24, 2011

Today, Burma Centre Delhi submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh for his kind attention to advocate for restoration of peace, justice and human rights in Burma and in the region. A copy of the memorandum was submitted to the Home Minister of India, Chief of UNHCR office New Delhi, NHRC and concerned Embassies. The memorandum conveys important message on the recent historic political events which occurred in Burma such as 2008 Nargis Constitution, November 2010 Election, release of Burmese democracy movement leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, convention of Nay Pyi Taw Parliament and demolition of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) and installation of the New Regime, the military controlled civilian uniform type.

Though from various sources inside and outside Burma it has been reported that the country is changing, but in reality that exactly is not happening in the so-called democratic set-up. Therefore, a resolution was adopted during Consultation on “Regime change in Burma: Post 2010 Elections and its Consequences” which was held on 6 May 2010 in Mizoram between democracy and human rights advocates, activists, civil society organizations and journalists from Northeast India with its main efforts to come together to discuss for development and restoration of peace and democracy in the region.
