In a prepared statement announced to the red-shirt followers at Rajamangala stadium in Hua Mark, Mrs Thida accused Suthep of committing a serious crime for ordering the seizure of government offices across the country which has caused widespread chaos among the officials.
Because of Suthep’s action, she said that the UDD would change its slogan from “Coup by the Constitution Court” to “Stop Hijacking Thailand”.
She also urged the protesters to stop harassing local and foreign media.
Jatuporn Promphan, another red-shirt leader, said that it was necessary for the red-shirt followers to be on the full alert to counter the anti-government protesters.
He said that the red shirts would stop their rally only when the protesters end their protests.
