Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Thursday called on anti-amnesty bill demonstrators to stop protesting against her government and let the country move forward, after the House of Representatives agreed to withdraw all six amnesty related bills from its agenda.
In a speech broadcast live on television, Ms Yingluck reiterated that the government's planned amnesty move had ended. She asked opponents of the blanket amnesty bill to stop rallying because the country had been greatly bruised from political conflicts in recent years.
