Suthep once again vows to step up rally


BANGKOK, 19 January 2014  Suthep Thaugsuban, the leader of an anti government movement, has called for the closure of government agencies nationwide as a means to step up the rally against the caretaker government.

Speaking on a stage late Saturday, Suthep set Monday 20 as the first day for the provincial government office closure scheme, which will first start in the southern region of Thailand.

On Sunday, Suthep led a group of protesters to Ladprao and Ratchada roads to invite Bangkok residents to join his Bangkok Shutdown campaign.
