Phichit farmers to head to Bangkok

Phichit-based farmers are planning to head to Bangkok this week for the ultimate goal of ousting the government, which is now blamed for rice-pledging scheme's delayed payment.

"We will mobilise hundreds of farm vehicles in our march to the capital," Northern Farmers Network's chairman Kittisak Rattanawaraha said Tuesday.

Farmers and supporters of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) decided to end their rally in front of the Phichit City Hall after their activities failed to get any response from the government.
