PM may work with Abhisit to tackle flood

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra may soon invite Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva to work as a team for flood control in the capital, Army chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Thursday.

"I expect the prime minister to work with Abhisit - this is better than each side going different way," he said following a meeting with Yingluck,

Prayuth said all sides should join together in order to overcome the worst flood in Bangkok.
The military would assist in every way to control the floodwater, he said, attaching a priority to rescue victims to be out of harm's way in case of overflowing.

Although it was impossible to evacuate all Bangkok residents, the rescue efforts would focus on residents living close to the dykes.

In areas where protection was still possible, the military would work with utmost efforts to divert the water flow, he said. Otherwise efforts would be on rescue and recovery, he added.
