All walks of life in Rangoon were excited and cheerful when they heard the news of U Win Tin’s release. Burmese general public were consumed themselves struggling for their day to day survival under the ruling of regime so much that they had lost their interest in looking out for political news and events. However soon after the news of U Win Tin’s release spread across Rangoon and beyond, they were found themselves in high spirits of his release.

“I am just happy to hear the news. I cannot tell in detail why. I have not met him before. But it seems to me like my father being freed from prison. The whole county will also be encouraged …” said one high school student.
