Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam on Saturday clarified that the open letters the government would write to 20 of the richest Thais was not an exercise in begging for money.

His reaction came in response to criticism of some netizens, who called the administration a "beggar government".

On Friday, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha had said that he would next week write an open letter to the 20 tycoons, asking for help in efforts to tackle the pandemic.

Wissanu added that things will get clearer next week and it is the premier who is taking care of all the details.
