Nakhon Ratchasima: The 2nd Army yesterday deployed soldiers to lock down 315 warehouses stocking pledged rice in the Northeast to prevent the stock from being moved before a large-scale inspection of the rice begins. 

The locking down of the warehouses is being carried out by military units nationwide. The date for the inspection of the stock has not yet been set.

Current security at the warehouses were put in place by provincial governors, the Public Warehouse Organisation and rice surveyor companies. The army wants to make sure that none of the stock can be moved.
