City Hall on Tuesday revealed how many mobile toilets it had provided for various political rallies in recent years, denying claims that officials exercised 'double standards' by supplying amenities for the ongoing protest rally at Uruphong intersection.
Treedao Apaiwong, spokesperson for the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, said the BMA had kept continuous record of requests for the agency’s mobile toilets during major political gatherings in the capital since 2010.
The records showed the BMA had provided 71 mobile toilet trucks to the red shirt's United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), nine to the yellow shirt's People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD), 18 to Pitak Siam, 10 to the anti-Thaksin V For Thailand white mask movement and three to the Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand, which is staging the current Uruphong rally.
