    Shan Nationalities Democratic Party (SNDP) annual meeting, planned for 3 days, is to end today, after 2 days, according to SNDP sources.
    One reason is Sai Ai Pao, party leader, who is also Minister of Mining in the Shan State Government, has to leave today to join the Independence celebrations in Naypyitaw. One township committee member, as a result, had suggested yesterday he should resign from the party chairmanship if his duty as a minister was so important. The sleepy meeting was jerked awake by his comment, said a Shan State MP. (SHAN)
