Swept the Prime Minister’s news, NCCC made more comments
As for the news that the Prime Minister The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) shall provide additional opinions on the case of the MRT Green Line concession. It’s not true The Prime Minister never asked for an opinion on NCCC on this issue
“Transport” blocked because Bangkok did not clear.
Mr. Soraphong Paitoonpong, Deputy Permanent Secretary for Transport, told “Prachachat Business” briefly that it represented the Ministry of Transport to discuss with Mr. Wisanu Krea-ngam, Deputy Prime Minister. On the issue of the actual green line concession

Only the draft contract documents have been sent. As for other issues, there was no reply. And would like to not disclose that What are the pending issues?
Bangkok counterattacks the information that they want, must ask for BTSC
A source from Bangkok revealed “Prachachat Business” that the Green Line train concession was still stuck at the Ministry of Transport alone, claiming that BMA did not send information to. The information requested by the ministry is the information of BTSC.
For information requested by the Ministry of Transport There are passenger estimates and project revenue projections. At the meeting, BTSC is happy to provide information. Just ask the Ministry of Transport to make a notice to come in But the Ministry of Transport refused to ask through Bangkok alone
“The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration promised to make a request for information from BTSC, but will BTSC provide information or not? It must be subject to BTSC’s consideration “
Lean has the power to manage the electric train outside Bangkok.
The next issue that the Ministry of Transport inquires is whether Bangkok has the power to operate a green line concession outside of Bangkok or not. Bangkok insists that it has administrative authority outside Bangkok.
“If not, how will the Cabinet make a transfer to BMA to be responsible for the extension? Which we see as a matter that the Ministry of Transport is violently Because this matter was considered in accordance with the resolution The cabinet has been around for a long time. “
BTSC announces that the green line has not stopped running.
As for the bus debt owed to BTSC, more than 30,000 million baht will be due on April 1, a source from Bangkok. Answered that BTSC reported at the meeting that Will cause the least impact on the public As for the news stream, when the bus stops, BTSC replied that it was a last resort in case there was really no choice.
Receive no plans to make money to pay
As for Bangkok, there is currently no backup plan to bring any money to pay the debt, so let BTSC sue, but will collect the fare for the extension of Mo Chit – Khu Khot and Bearing – Samut Prakan Housing or No, in order to bring income to earning first, we have to talk to each other because the issue of the highest fare is still inconclusive. The Ministry of Transport insists on objection to the maximum fare of 65 baht.
As for the Ministry of Transport, the maximum fare is 50 baht, it is calculated from the estimate of passengers on the Green Line train, there will be 1 million people traveling per day. This is in the old master plan because actually the maximum number of passengers on the green line is 700,000 people travel / day only.
“Mr Wissanu has not said when he will be able to propose to the cabinet, but said that the Ministry of Transport urged the Ministry of Transport to make a request for information from BTSC and BMA requested that information be sent as soon as possible. In order to have no lawsuit against BTSC, “the source said.
Hey! Extension of Khu Khot – Pak Nam still not collecting money
The source went on to say that Fares collection section, extension of Mo Chit – Khu Khot and Bearing – Samut Prakan Housing. There is no idea to collect fares at this time. Personally, the bus debt of 30,000 million baht in the year 2022 budget was not prepared. There is only an interest payment to the Ministry of Finance 1,000 million baht per year. Which is the interest from the difference from the main fare line and the extension
All units agree with all except “communication”.

Even the pending cases with the NACC, the NACC itself confirmed in the meeting that Not related The wrong people go to each other. It’s not about the part that is pushing each other. Therefore does not affect this part, “the source concluded.
