The government should rethink its plan for legislation allowing it to acquire 2.2 trillion baht in loans for infrastructure projects, and instead finance the work through its annual expenditure budget, opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Tuesday. 

The Democrat Party leader said  the annual budget requires projects to be implemented according to the order of priority set, with strict enforcement of the law against corruption for effective management.

"If these projects are implemented through loans, there will be problems with transparency and examination," said Mr Abhisit.
