On the second day of the 2012 budget debate Thursday, the opposition warned the government that people, frustrated by the mismanagement of the flood crisis, might start rioting.
The opposition leaders also pointed out that the funds allocated for flood recovery were inadequate. 
Democrat MP Wittaya Kaewparadai warned the government that people might take the law into their own hands, especially since many believe that politicians and state officials are lining their own pockets with donations.
After the 1995 floods, people in the South burned down the city hall because they believed the provincial governor was keeping donations to himself, he said, adding that he was concerned about the lack of transparency of the Bt120billion rehabilitation plan.
