Science and Technology Minister Plodprasop Surasawadi said on Monday he would set up a committee to investigate the Bangkok city administration for stuffing sandbags into the drainage system on Srinakarin Road in disobedience of the instructions of the Water and Flood Management Commission (WFMC).
Mr Plodprasop, as WFMC chairman, said he had three questions for the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to answer:
1. What kind of water management is stuffing sandbags in the drains?
2. Who ordered BMA workers to put sandbags in the sewers, and why this was done while storms were on the way?
3. Where else has the BMA stuffed sandbags in the drains?
