Former Democrat MP Warong Dechgitvigrom Thursday called on the National Council for Peace and Order to end the controversial rice-pledging scheme.



He said the NCPO should replace the scheme with a rice price guarantee.
Warong said the NCPO should apply a transitional measure by paying compensation to farmers for the cost of fertilisers and pesticide at the rate of between Bt1,000 to Bt2,000 per rai.
