The government has rejected allegations that 260,000 of tablet computers in its 2.6 billion baht-One Tablet Per Child (OTPC) project have broken.
The denial came during a parliamentary meeting on Thursday after Democrat Party MP for Pathum Thani Kiatisak Songsang filed a formal question asking Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to clarify a report that the Office of the Auditor-General (OAG), which monitors the OTPC policy, found around 30%, or 260,000, of 860,000 tablet computers distributed to Prathom 1 students last year had been broken at an estimated cost of 800 million baht.
