Give Bt5,000 to everyone: Thai Labour Party
More than 20 Thai Labour Party members gathered in front of the Finance Ministry, demanding that the government extend the Bt5,000 handouts to everyone.
The members said they came to “claim their right” to receive Bt5,000, asking the ministry to pay the money equally to all people.
They wanted all citizens aged 20 to have the same right to claim the amount regardless of their occupation by showing only their ID card without having to register and requiring the government to hand out the money through bank accounts. They asked that the process be completed in 30 days.
