Red shirts asked to stop promoting separatism: PM

Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra today said she has instructed the army to prevent any move toward separatism, and also asked the red shirt group to stop mentioning the issue.

Ms Yingluck made the remark following the army's move to file charges against the red shirt group in the North for allegedly instigating separatism.

The caretaker premier said she has instructed the army to ensure national security in all provinces, especially monitoring any unlawful activities to prevent any attempt of separatism.

Ms Yingluck however stated that equal practice must be applied to all groups without discrimination.

The caretaker premier said she has also warned all groups including the pro-government red shirts and ministers who raised the separatism ideas, adding that such idea was mentioned due to their resentment.

Meanwhile, anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) today announced its support for the army's move.

PDRC spokesman Akanat Promphan said he was disappointed with Ms Yingluck's remark blaming the army for applying a double-standard practice to take legal action against pro-separatism groups.

Mr Akanat reaffirmed that the PDRC has not violated the law and that the protesters are ready to shield the army from any impact from its move.

"It is the prime minister who applies double standards for failing to take any action against those people," the PDRC spokesperson said.
