The Thai anti-government "red- shirts" in the countryside Monday were asked by core leaders to block police forces from moving to reinforce police in capital Bangkok.

It is believed police will disperse the rally by Monday, Thai News Agency quoted "red-shirt" core leader Natthawut Saikua as saying.

Hence, forces of provincial police will be blocked by the "red- shirt" supporters in the countryside from traveling to Bangkok, said Natthawut.

Natthawut said the "red-shirts" are not worried.

The "red-shirt" rally has been held from March 12 as they have demanded Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to "immediately" dissolve the lower House of parliament and hold a new general election.

They are viewing that, apart from the House dissolution, there is no other solution to the country's ongoing political conflict.

But, at the same time, the number of Thais in "various-color shirts", who have opposed the early House dissolution, is increasingly.
