Pitak Siam rally hopes to oust govt

Organiser Boonlert wants to see a coup

- +

A planned rally on Sunday by the Pitak Siam (Protecting Siam) group may become a sustained protest to expel the Pheu Thai-led government, core organiser Gen Boonlert Kaewprasit says. 

The retired general said he would have staged a coup by now if he was in a position to do so, claiming the country is being run by a "puppet government".

"I'd love to see a coup because I know this puppet government is here to rob the country. Several sectors of society can't take it anymore. If I had the power a coup would have been staged by now," he said.
