PM Yingluck asks growers to end blockades

- +

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Sunday asked protesting rubber farmers in Nakhon Si Thammarat to end their road blockades, saying their action could damage the economy apart from blocking road traffic. 

Ms Yingluck made her plea after returning Sunday morning from a visit to Switzerland, Italy, the Vatican and Montenegro.

She said she had been updated on the situation, particularly the road blockades at Khuan Nong Hong intersection in Cha-uat district and Ban Tao Poon intersection in Chulabhorn district of Nakhon Si Thammarat, and instructed the national police chief to maintain law and order at the two spots.
