Three-quarters of people polled on the government’s 2.2 trillion baht infrastructure development projects plans expect there to be corruption, but just over half still approved of the plan, Nida poll at the National Institution of Development Administration said on Thursday. 

The pollster said opinions were sought from 1,249 people of all education levels and occupations nationwide, between March 18 and March 19.
