In Arakan/Rakhine state, some Rakhine monks turned up themselves in the media and accusing for less receiving aid. In deed, there were no displaced Rakhines at all in the other towns except from Rakhines who were from the model villages of Maungdaw township that relocated on the Rohingya people' lands under model village settlement program of the government in the late 1991.
Those displaced Rakhines in Maungdaw are less than 10,000 people and they already received enough foods and goods from the government including those looted from Rohingya and from the beginning they are separately placed in 4 miles area.
