Bangkok The Myanmar army has termed the ‘People’s Defense Force’ as a ‘terrorist organization’ to confront the pseudo-government and security forces of MPs and leaders ousted after the February coup. In Myanmar, the army had arrested the country’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders in a coup. The elected leaders who were ousted after this military coup formed a pseudo government of ‘interim national unity’. The junta termed these leaders as seditious and announced on the state TV channel on Saturday that these leaders were called terrorists for taking part in the civil disobedience movement. A large number of people are joining this movement by demonstrating daily on the streets to protest against the military coup, despite the strong action of the authorities. The Pseudo government had announced the formation of ‘People’s Defense Force’ last week.
