Myanmar: Army Consolidates its Grip on the Country after the Coup

Paper No. 6750                   Dated  6-Feb-2021
By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan
 
Except for a few odd exceptions, the response of the general public to the Army Coup has been rather muted.  Two reasons are given.  One- Most of the NLD leaders including Suu Kyi are in jail and there has not been any time to strategise any response.  The second was a clear message from Suu Kyi that protests should be peaceful and violence should be avoided at any cost.

The Army take over was justified by the need to resolve huge instances of alleged fraud in the November 8 Elections.

Paper No. 6436                      Dated  7-Oct-2018
By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
Of late, the media in Myanmar is full of articles of possible Coup, failure of the Government,  the international pressure on the Rohingya Issue and consequent bad relations between the Tatmadaw and the Civilian Government. The inference being made out is that if the Government does not act, the possibility of a coup cannot be ruled out!
