Warong said that politicians from both the government and opposition, aimed to amend the Constitution for their own benefit. So, the charters drafted by them must be blocked.
After submitting the petition, Warong and his royalist supporters will go to the Office of the Attorney-General to submit another petition for blocking any amendments.
