The SPDC junta does not care whoever writes any 'road map'.
The most important thing is to reach a common agreement among
all of us; the opposition forces, Burman and non-Burman, democratic
and nationalist. First, we all the Mon should have one voice;
second, all our ethnic non-Burman groups should have one common
voice; and third, a common agreement between the Burman and
non-Burman opposition forces. When too many opposition groups
write too many 'road maps', it shows our disunity and will
only make SPDC happy. The international community will not
pay attention on our struggle either.
