RECENTLY spreading news that about 14,000 Tatmadaw members have been stationed in Nay Pyi Taw is just misinformation, said a military officer.
“It is not true. The situation in Nay Pyi Taw is peaceful. As you know false news has been spreading every day. It might be a plan of a group. They intend to impose fear on people living in Nay Pyi Taw with that misinformation. The deployment of 14,000 Tatmadaw members in Nay Pyi Taw is not correct,” he said.
Moreover, the Information Team of SAC also released a statement saying the anti-government media spread the misinformation on social media that about 14,000 troops are stationed to protect the main military headquarters from nationwide offensives, and these claims are just fake news and misinformation.
Similarly, an official of the SAC Information Team also reaffirmed that the news is just untrue and the false media outlets are spreading false information.
