Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee, said Wednesday that the PDRC will not stage marches from April 12 to 15.
He made the announcement following a talk with Defence Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Gen Nipat Thonglek at the Defence Ministry.
Suthep said Nipat was worried that there were not be enough troops to keep security during the Songkran holidays.
As a result, Suthep said, he agreed to make no marches during the Songkran holidays so that troops and police could take a break and stay with their families during the holidays.
