A press conference about a fund raising music concert for educational support for the ethnic nationalities organized by NLD education network was held at the Sakura tower in Rangoon. Ko Linn Naing Oo conducted as a master of ceremony.
NLD CEC member U Win Tin and Information Department in charge U Ohn Kyaing, U Zaw Win, U Win Nyein, Song Oo Hlaing, Ko Phyoe Minn Thein, Ko Myo Yan Naung Thein and well-known singers, musician, reporters and journalists attended the press conference.
U Win Tin said in his opening speech that he came here on behalf of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as she asked him to do so. As per suggestions of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, several networks have been established and Youth Education Network is one of them. This network has done many things with success and he felt encouraged as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and many musicians helped this network especially after their recent meeting. He is also thankful to U Zaw Win and other facilitators who has attempted to realize it. He also welcomes all helps and suggestions for this event.
Then U Zaw Win said that they met with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on 25th November and talked about a music album to be produced. She suggested some songs like 'Nagani' which aroused patriotism in independence struggle and fought against bad will and habit of people, agitated and encouraged young people to promote their good will to do for the benefit of the country. Some media misunderstood that album would be about propaganda works of NLD for election campaigns. These statements were totally wrong. Now musicians accepted guidance of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and organized a music concert for fund raising and thanks for people who helped realize it. Another music concert would be duplicated in Mandalay if succeeded.
Singer Song Oo Hlaing talked on behalf of musicians that the music concert will be participated by almost all well known singers and musicians in order to support Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and U Win Tin. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said when she met with them to compose songs that would raise people's patriotism. They would try to do their best to fulfill this task.
