Abhisit calls on PM to reveal truth on bartering rice for high-speed train


BANGKOK, 14 October 2013 Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva has called on Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to speak the truth regarding how Thai rice is being sold to China in exchange for the high-speed rail service. 

Mr. Abhisit has insisted that the Prime Minister disclosed the facts about whether or not Thai rice was being sold to China in exchange for the much-talked-about high-speed train.

He continued on to say that the 2.2 billion baht loan which the government planned to use to develop the country’s entire infrastructure would only have one final destination – Nakhon Ratchasima province.

He urged the government to consider this fact carefully as the northeastern region of Thailand is the bastion of their votes.
