Another gigantic roadside sign featuring Prawit spotted in Buengkarn


By Thai Newsroom Reporters

ANOTHER COLOSSAL ROADSIDE sign featuring caretaker Prime Minister-cum-Palang Pracharath party leader Prawit Wongsuwan has been spotted in downtown Buengkarn with an attached note literally soliciting legal leniency for its existence.

The vinyl billboard features an enlarged picture of the mask-wearing Prawit, the ruling party’s logo and catchphrases about a watershed forest conservation project in the northeastern province where he has earlier visited.

Attached underneath is a relatively small sign soliciting “kindnesses” of the Highway Department to allow the free use of the roadside plot of public land for the installation of the gigantic billboard and the Buengkarn municipality to provide a signboard tax exemption for it.

The small sign shows a cell phone number purportedly for anyone to contact a “government directing centre.”

Roadside signs spotted in the provinces featuring the caretaker premier-cum-Palang Pracharath leader and his party’s logo and catchphrases on some government projects and campaigns, including the distribution of 20 million state welfare cards for the poor, have promptly drawn criticism to the extent that they are merely being exploited in exchange for votes for Palang Pracharath candidates vying in the next general election for MPs at the expense of the taxpayer’s money.

A huge roadside sign featuring the caretaker Premier-cum-Palang Pracharath boss and the party logo has been erected in Nongbua Lamphu just before he officially visited the northeastern province over the weekend.
