Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has refused to provide special compensation to the people on the outskirts of Bangkok whose communities have been kept flooded to protect the inner city and it’s financial centres.
She has rejected a proposal from the government’s Flood Relief Operation Command (Froc) that the government make a daily payment of 500-1,000 baht to each of flood victims trapped behind the dykes in Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi and Nakhon Pathom provinces, and in some suburban areas of Bangkok.
“All areas are in the same trouble. I sympathise with them and I am trying to offer adequate assistance.
“As for rehabilitation in deeply flooded areas, ministers have been assigned to help flood victims in the field and I am sure that the assistance will be adequate,” Ms Yingluck said.
