Railways have been built, new trailers have been built, and roads and bridges have been built.
Debts have been paid off.

Black silver has become white silver.
Externally frozen and blocked accounts have also been reopened.
She also defended herself after attending the ICJ.
Prizes have been revoked and internationally condemned
The ICJ has rarely been able to stand up straight.

This time, the military is back in power and has taken over the rights of Mother Aung San Suu Kyi for the second time.
There will be more billionaires.

All citizens have contributed a lot in these 10 years.

Does love not reflect the fact that there is no truth in Burma?

On one hand, Suu Kyii lost credibility for defending the Burmese military and denying that they committed genocide against the Rohyngas. On the other hand, the military will be brutal to literally everyone who crosses them, not just the Rohynga Muslims. That said, it's safe to say Suu Kyii chose not to condemn the ethnic cleansing because she feared what just happened in the country would have happened earlier, since the military controlled what was a pseudo-democracy, and didn't want to be imprisoned again like she had been before she became Chief Councilor. The military, however, was likely looking for a reason to restore dictatorship to Myanmar, so the pseudo-democracy was screwed as long as the government and military were on unbalanced footing checks-and-balances-wise.

At first, here is a short snap about Myanmar.
This is actually the second time after the 1962 coup led by dictator Ne Win. Following, the second generation of military dictator Than Shwe ruled about 18 years after 1988, one of the remarkable pro-democracy uprising which thousands of protests have been killed.
Myanmar has been a place for international power player since the geolocation is strategically for China and well as its economic opportunities and rich in minerals. Although the population lived under poverty and the condition dined of access to the life of dignity and well-being are very common. Unequal distribution of resources and powers are also the cause of conflict in between ethnic groups and the country are lacking with rule of law and justice for its long period under military regime.
In 2008, the military dictators are referendum the 2008 constitution right after Nargis, the worst destructive cyclone hit Myanmar. The 2008 so called “Nargis Constitution” retain significant control by the military over government by seeing 25% of the parliamentary seat are reserved for serving military officer. And the important administration, ministries and military power are only under control by the Commander-in-Chief of Army forces.
We already hold with three general election by the 2008 constitution and the USDP, party of former military personnel are winning the first election while NLD voted to boycott the election. Started form 2012 Aung San Su Kyi and other NLD candidates sweep the board in parliament as well as in 2015 and again in 2020. The people of the country are trusting their leader DASSK and the transformation of NLD government. Although the military tried to performed conflicts by using religion and ethnic identities along the process with the support of China.
And this 2020 the victory of people power bowled the abatement of military power and which seem persuaded to cause this unlawful military coup and denied the wills and the future of citizens.
Our mobile networks are cut off and as well as the internet connection as for the whole country while the coup happened and all the broadcast channel and news channel are banned
Our leader Aung San Suu Kyi and president U Win Myint, NLD candidate and many politically influential detained as military seizes control for this moment. It is to state that this coup doesn’t belong any legitimacy or peoples wills and not even following the acting constitution. This is surely the illegitimate power grab of Min Aung Hlaing and his army. This is the significant act of threatening and denied the rights, liberty and freedom of the citizen.
Therefore, we strongly condemn this coup.
We will never accept it. We are not freighting of any and our generation has a duty to end this cruel dictatorship from this country. We are the common citizen and we do not have gun power, but we are not powerless we believe we have power in solidarity. We must fight to end this mess and I am posting it because we heard some new that the internet will be shut down again and we do not know when will be connected again. Hope that the democracy will prevail one day in this land of glory.

Some countries have armies. Some armies have countries. The army in Myanmar followed the playbook to the letter. Claim rampant fraud when no such fraud exists, then use it as an excuse to take power. The only difference between this and what the MAGA cult wanted to do in the US capitol is that Myanmar's army is actually competent and led by ruthless people. This is what a REAL coup looks like.
