According to Mr. Prapat, the closure of the southern rail track in Prachuab Kirikhan Province is for maintenance purposes, not to prevent protesters from joining the People’s Democratic Refrom Committee (PDRC)’s planned mass rally tomorrow.
Previously, the SRT announced the closure of the rail tracks for 4 days beginning yesterday and ending on Tuesday. Mr. Prapat said that the rail bridge in Prachuab Kirikhan Province urgently needed repairing.
The resumption of services would refute the rumors spreading in the social media linking the closure to politics, particularly the one claiming the move was perpetrated by the government to fend off PDRC’s supporters joining its planned rally tomorrow, said Prapat.
Nonetheless, the closure has angered the PDRC’s supporters from the South who wish to attend the rally, triggering the groundless rumors.
