BMA told to remove sandbags

- +

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is being told to remove all the sandbags stuffed in the city's drains, or the Water and Flood Management Commission will send its own work crews to do it, Science and Technology Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi said on Tuesday. 

Mr Plodprasop said he had ordered the secretary of the WFMC to send an official letter to the BMA asking where else it had blocked drains with sandbags other than along Srinakarin Road and instructing city officials to remove them all within 15 days.

If the BMA failed to comply, the WFMC would send its own men to remove them, he said.
