The government has seven days to reconsider its decision to slash the paddy pledging ceiling price to 12,000 baht a tonne, Thai Farmers Association president Wichian Phuanglamchiak has warned. 

He said representatives of the association and farmers from 22 provinces in the Central region will submit a letter to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Tuesday at Government House to ask her to reconsider the price cut.

Mr Wichian said if the government ignores their demand after seven days, rice farmers from across the country will travel on farm trucks to Bangkok to pressure the government.
