By S. Chandrasekharan.

In the midst of intensive and heavy fighting between Myanmar Army( Tatmadaw) and the Arakan Army, Suu Kyi’s Government is making efforts in tandem to secure peace and stability in Rakhine Province. But one cannot fight with one hand and try to shake hands with the other.  Thia is what is happening in Rakhine State in a new front  that has opened in the West in Myanmar.

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! 
 

Myanmar Under Siege: Give Suu Kyi some Respite!

Paper No. 6426 .    Dated 16-Sept-2018

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

The Myanmar Government appears to be coming under a siege mainly by the international organizations and some western countries. If their idea is to throw Myanmar back into the arms of the Chinese, they are perhaps already succeeding.  Even if the Government and the people want to get out of the stranglehold of China, the mission of these agencies is to ensure that it does not happen.

Myanmar- Pressure on Civilian Government uncalled for:

Paper No. 6392 .   Dated 26-June-2018

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan.

It is noticed that the UN and some Western Countries are putting undue pressure on the civilian leadership in Myanmar thus straining the delicate and cautious relationship between the civilian government led by Suu Kyi and the Tatmadaw (the Army). The problem relates to the events in Rakhine State and the exodus of nearly six to seven hundred thousand Rohingyas to Bangladesh.
