Arakan National Congress


Arakan National Congress
   (ANC)
   Established in 1938 to promote the interests of the Arakanese (Rakhines), it held its first convention in 1940. After World War II, Aung San persuaded U Aung Zan Wai and other leaders to dissolve the ANC and join the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League as individuals rather than as members of an AFPFL united front group. Meanwhile, U Seinda, a militant Arakanese leader and member of the Sangha, began resistance against the central government in 1946 with the goal of establishing an independent Arakan.
