Thai PM rejects resignation demands

Bangkok, Dec 2: Thailand Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Monday rejected protesters’ demands for her resignation amid fresh clashes here though offering talks.

She said the demands were not possible under the constitution, but that she remained open to dialogue, BBC reported Monday.

“Anything I can do to make people happy, I am willing to do… but as prime minister, what I can do, must be under the constitution,” Shinawatra said in a televised address.

More clashes broke out Monday as protesters tried to storm the prime minister’s office, Government House.

Four people have died in Thailand’s worst political turmoil since the 2010 rallies that ended in violence.
