Govt supporters asked to keep away from parliament

(BangkokPost.com) - Red shirt-donning government supporters are asked to refrain from going to the parliament Monday, according to People Power party (PPP) MP and pro-government talk show host Jatuporn Promphan.

Mr Jatuporn said the content of Sunday's talk show, organized at Suan Kaew temple in Bangkok, would not differ much from the previous versions and primarily involved the United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship's (UDD) standpoint on maintaining democracy. He said the highlight of the show would be a dharma lecture by Phra Phayom, the abbot of Suan Kaew temple. There would not be talks provoking political conflicts or encouraging pro-government supporters to rally against the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) at parliament on Monday, according to Mr Jatuporn.

The MP said he pleaded government supporters not to go to parliament as such action might trigger violence and lead to a coup. He also said the House meeting should not be rescheduled or relocated, but should the meeting not be able to take place the PAD would seen as the one causing the damage.
