PTV to hold weekly anti-govt rallies

( - Operators of the pro-Thaksin satellite channel People's Television (PTV) will stage a rally again next Friday, after managing to attract sizeable crowds yesterday at Sanam Luang.

PTV executive Jakrapob Penkair said Saturday that he expected the upcoming rally to draw about 10,000 supporters of deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

The rally that was held on Friday attracted around 3,000 people, including those who planned to take part in the sports festival that was planned to be held at the venue.

Mr Jakrapob said they plan to hold a rally similar to this for another three to four weeks to talk to supporters but denied that this was a move to try to oust the government and the military's Council for National Security.

He also denied that operators try to tell supporters to wait for Mr Thaksin's return later this year. He said Mr Thaksin would definitely return to Thailand but he cannot say when.

Meanwhile, CNS chairman Sonthi Boonyaratkalin said he was not worried about the PTV's protest, saying that people would soon get bored with it because there was nothing interesting plus the weather is hot.
