Opposition refutes junta’s allegation of planting bomb

by Phanida

Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – Border based pro-democracy opposition forces have rubbished the junta’s allegation that it had planted a bomb found in Pyinmana railway station near the new capital city, Naypyitaw.

“Today they accused our student’s army of being a terrorist organization. They accused us of planning bomb blasts in urban areas to instill fear among the people. Our student’s army strongly objects to these allegations reported in the junta’s daily newspaper,” the ‘All Burma Students’ Democratic Front’ (ABSDF) Chairman Than Ke said.

The SPDC’s (junta) allegation is wrong and they are not using violent means on the people, Forum for Democracy in Burma (FDB) General Secretary Dr. Naing Aung said.

“Since the inception of our organization, our objective is to help and support the people’s movement by peaceful and non-violent means. We are into non-violent people’s movement and are pushing the people in non-violent way only. There is no violence in our movement,” Dr. Naing Aung said.

Today’s issue of junta’s daily newspaper reported that a time bomb was found on Naypyitaw-Pyinmana No. 32 Train, in tye Upper Class Coach No. 5 yesterday morning and that it was allegedly planted by terrorists.

Than Ke also denied that they have a ‘Committee for Promoting People Activities’ (CPPA) as alleged by the Burmese military regime. The junta has declared the ABSDF a terrorist organization.

The newspaper also reported that two people were sent to Burma by these terrorist organizations to trigger a series of bomb blasts in Rangoon at busy and crowded areas and near the Insein market besides laying booby traps meant to explode when security personnel come to remove their anti-government posters.

The junta must take all responsibility for the explosions and threats.

“They need to release Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as soon as possible to overcome the political, economic and social crises that Burma faces. They must engage in dialogue at the earliest date. Only in this way will our country be free from all crises and hardships,” Than Ke said.

“We want to expose that the junta has not only arrested Daw Suu unfairly but is also unjustly going against the entire democratic movement. We plan to show we are firmly behind Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and are united as one in this struggle,” Dr. Naing Aung said.

He further said that the junta’s current actions of trying to disarm the ceasefire groups, framing a case against Daw Suu, declaring ‘Burma Lawyers’ Council’ as an unlawful organization are meant to mislead the people and to tarnish the image of these organizations and individuals.
