Power, water services will not be disrupted by mass protest: interior minister

Interior Minister Charupong Ruangsuwan insisted Friday that the caretaker government would not allow disruptions of power and water services to be disrupted by the protesters on January 13.

Charupong said he had held a meeting with the permanent secretary for Interior Ministry and governors of the Metropolitan Electricity Authority, Provincial Electricity Authority, Metropolitan Waterworks Authority and the Provincial Waterworks Authority and all of them promised that they would not allow their services to be disrupted.

The People's Democratic Reform Committee threatened to disrupt the services as part of its plan to shut down Bangkok on January 13.
