Kachin State Putao District Residents told RFA that there is a shortage of food in Khao Lan Phu town due to landslides and communication disruptions for more than two months.

Since the beginning of last April, the road has been closed due to a landslide in the Putao - Khao Lan Phu Road Sansooche Valley, which has made travel difficult.

motor oil A resident of Putao told RFA that they are facing food problems because they cannot buy dry food, including cooking oil and rice.

"There's no phone line on that side either. The road is a landslide from the valley road, so even motorcycles can't cross it. It's even worse with a car. The locals eat Uhlaing (a local food made from the Uhlaing plant) instead of rice. I also know that they eat potatoes and corn. The road is often broken during the rainy season, but it wasn't as difficult as this year."

Khao Lan Phu Township officials want the damaged road to be repaired as soon as possible, he said.

Putao City and Khao Lan Phu City are more than 120 miles apart, and residents said that they mainly buy food and consumer goods from Putao City.

RFA contacted Social Affairs Minister U Moe Min Thein, the military council's spokesperson for Kachin State, to find out more about this matter, but he did not receive an answer.

2014 According to the census, more than ten thousand people (11,655) live in Khao Lan Phu.
