Resignation-Chief-Minister-Rakhaine-state The head of Arakan province government has resigned yesterday understandable because of pressure of the Union government.

The government source in Sittwe reveals that  has tendered his resignation from his post.

Meanwhile, the Burmese President U Thein Sein has announced the resignation of U Hla Maung Tin through the government run newspaper from Yangon today. However, the reason behind his resignation is yet to be declared.
