BANGKOK, Jan 9 – Caretaker Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt on Thursday reassured the public that the transport system in the Thai capital will not be paralysed when the anti-government demonstrators carry out their planned blockage of Bangkok’s major streets on Monday.

Mr Chadchart gave his assurances to a meeting chaired by caretaker Prime Minister/Defence Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to seek measures to facilitate tourists during the closure of seven major streets in Bangkok. The move came following concerns that the closure may disrupt how passengers get to their accommodations in town.
