Pyithu Hluttaw MPs raised queries on waterway transport, mini hydropower projects and hiring of teachers Thursday during the 58th day session of the Lower House.
U Saw Htut Khaung Lwin from Kyainn-Seikkyi Township constituency in Kayin State asked the Ministry of Transport about progress on repairs on a ferry boat crossing the Athtayan River.
Deputy Minister for Transport U Han Sein said the vessel is being repaired at Thanlwin shipyard and is expected to return to the river in July.
Daw Sandar Min, MP from Zabuthiri constituency, asked for construction of a mini hydropower project on Nant Salain creek in fiscal 2016-2017.
Deputy Minister U Maw Tha Htwe said the creek has no steep slope and is suitable for a reservoir rather than a hydropower plant. The deputy minister, however, said a hydropower plant would be constructed on Honehnyi creek, which has a potential capacity of 5 megawatts in rainy season, and could be a site for two plants.
MP U Tin Htay Aung of Yesagyo Township urged the government to fill vacancies of teachers immediately in some villages of his constituency as the school season has started.
Deputy Minister for Education U Thant  Shin said the ministry has appointed new teachers in schools, and the required teachers will be appointed on a daily payment basis under the management of the state government.
