Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shianawatra on January 14 reiterated her refusal to quit as protesters trying to topple her administration blocked key roads in the heart of Bangkok for a second day.

In regards to the Election Commission's proposal to postpone the February 2 election, the PM said this will be put on the table with relevant cabinet officials on January 15.

The same day, leader of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) Suthep Thaugsuban threatened to capture caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and key cabinet ministers, and even to take them into custody if they do not resign.

Speaking on one of the rally stages, Suthep said the protesters will move to lay siege to all government offices in the next two to three days.

If the caretaker government refuses to resign as required, the PDRC will lift the protest to a higher level by blockading the houses of Yingluck and important cabinet members, he said.

The "Bangkok Shutdown" movement led by Suthep started on January 13, aiming to paralyse the capital and force Yingluck to step down.

However, the number of the participants in the drive is reported to be decreasing as many of them have to return to their work.

Earlier, deputy PM Surapong Tovichakchaikul affirmed the government is able to control the current situation and is carrying out a range of measures to ensure tourists’ safety and the normal operation of flights.-VNA
