Prayuth says NCPO will not continue rice-pledging scheme

National Council for Peace and Order Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha said Friday that the NCPO will not continue the controversial rice-pledging scheme.

"If you ask me now, there will be no more rice-pledging scheme," Prayuth said while chairing a budget meeting with government agencies. The meeting was broadcast live on Channel 5 and NBT.

"Whether it will be continued in the future is another matter. Now we have to help farmers cut cost and increase production."
