Rumors circulating on social media platforms allege that People’s Militias are recruiting new members by forcing village administrators in Yedashe and Waw Townships of Bago Region.

In response to recent misinformation circulating on social media, an official of Bago Region government clarified that members of people’s militia are conducting security measures in cooperation with the Tatmadaw to protect the lives and properties of the people. This news is fabricated and exploits the innocent minds of local residents, leading to misunderstandings.
