Democrat calls on Yingluck to prevent violence, confrontation between red shirts, PDRC

Democrat Party deputy leader Ongart Klampaiboon Wednesday called on caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to have government agencies prevent possible clashes between red shirts and demonstrators led by the People's Democratic Reform Committee.

Ongart said although red-shirt leaders vowed that their rally in Bangkok after the Songkran holidays would be peaceful, their rallies in 2009 and 2010 showed that violence could happen.

Ongart said the red shirts always intimidated the Democrat and other groups of opponents.
