On Thursday Jatuporn Promhphant, the red shirt leader announced that there is a planned campaign to keep Bangkok open on January 13th and it will counter the anti-government protesters plans to shut the capital down.
At a press conference he said the time had come for people, with the red shirt protestors among them, to stand up and fight against what he terms as the elite’s network which planned to mobilize southerners to bring down the elected government.
The planned shutdown of the capital by the Pheu Thai party could cost the economy over two hundred billion baht. Pichai Nariptapand, the head of the party’s economic advisory board claims that since the start of the anti government protests the country’s economy has already been affected by damages that now stand over seventy billion baht.
He has asked the Democratic leader Abhisit Vejjajiva to approach the PDRC leader and ask him to halt the shutdown attempts as it could have a vast impact on the economy. He mentioned that the closure of Suvarnabhumi airport had badly damaged the country’s economy and there was not serous action taken against the perpetrators. This might convince the PDRC into thinking that the shutdown could be carried out with no punishment by laws he said.
