PM in Ranong day ahead of mobile meeting

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha was in the southern province of Ranong on Monday to meet the locals before holding a mobile Cabinet meeting today to three local development projects.

 

Going to a province one day ahead is a usual ritual for the Prayut-led Cabinet, which is also seen as a means to boost his government’s popularity.

 

Ranong governor Jatupot Piyamputra said the province has put forward proposals for the construction of a four-lane road connecting Ranong with Chumpon, which will cost Bt2.9 billion; a Bt140-million gymnasium and sports rehab centre; and the construction of two reservoirs worth Bt300 million.

 

The province also wants the Cabinet to set a specific line between forested area and the city area, so land can be used legally for investment purposes.

 

Prayut and his ministers spent most of on Monday soaking in hot springs, doing yoga and visiting the Ranong port, which is one of the logistical spots along the Andaman sea. 

 

There are plans to develop this seaside province into a trading and logistics hub in line with the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle as well as economic cooperation in the Bay of Bengal region.

Ranong, a tourist destination, is also pushing to promote alternative medical care with its hot springs, and is also focusing on the rehabilitation and recovery of natural maritime resources.

 

Prayut said one of his top priorities would be to give the province better transportation and land infrastructure in order to create “nationwide seamless connectivity”.

The premier spent time talking to locals and even took selfies with them. Some were heard telling him that he “should stay PM for long without any election”, to which he only responded with a smile.

Must have given out blue shirts and black jackets to the "locals" before the photo shoot.  Considering Ranong has a lot of Muslims it is surprising that as he claimed to be meeting the people.  not one Muslim appear to be in-sight ,  unless that is they dispensed with their original garb.  In fact it looks like just a large collection of sycophants grinning at a barmy leader.

Maybe he could spend some of his ill-gotten gains on getting signs made up in Chinese so the much touted tourists wont go and drown themselves, while down there he could even go and place them on the beach instead of sitting around dangling feet in pool, just might save a life or 2

He is not caring for the people of Thailand, so he has to do something.  This is the best option for a tinpot as apposed to freedom of speech.

But that's not political campaigning?

Code for "passive campaigning". It appears that the visit was also designed to campaign in other areas as well since the photos appear staged with very few of the people pictured looking like locals. The only thing Prayut is really concentrating on is how to steal an election while appearing to be participating in a free process to elect the leader of a country.
