Thailand's main coalition Bhumjaithai party is ready to quit if the prime minister no longer wants to work with them, local media quoted Interior Minister and leader of Bhumjaithai Party as saying on Wednesday.

Chavarat was asked by reporters on the PM's statement on Tuesday that the Democrat-led government can stay on even if without support from Bhumjaithai party, but he refused to make any comment.

Bhumjaithai leader said he did not want to make any reactions as he preferred to keep silence.

"If the prime minister drops my party from the coalition, I am ready to go and do other work", said Chavarat.

In response to the report that the former deputy PM and the Democrat Suthep Thuagsuban would take his place as interior minister, Chavarat said that he was not worried.

Bhumjaithai Party was officially unveiled in January 2009 and most of its members came from the pro-Thaksin Thai Rak Thai and People Power Parties which were dissolved in 2007 and 2008 consecutively due to violation of electoral laws. The party has 32 members of parliament out of 269 in the government coalition.
