Govt pledges to eradicate poverty ahead of general election

Tanakorn Sangiam

 

BANGKOK, 14 July 2018 (NNT) – The government has pledged its commitment to eradicate poverty ahead of a general election which would be held in the next eight months, said Prime Minister's Office Minister Kobsak Pootrakool. 

 

In a national televised broadcast, he said that the government is currently on track to solve poverty, reduce inequalities, reform governing bodies, and promote public participation in politics in order to pave way for Thailand with a better future. 

 

He said the government intended to meet the public's needs before the general election expected in the next eight months, adding that the government has accomplished many campaigns to increase income among the general public, such as the grouping of local manufacturers, reducing dependencies with informal loans, and enhancing the value of local products. 

 

The government has been promoting community enterprises and provide support in forms of village funds which are legally recognized, as well as certifying the work of community enterprises to promote savings, which helps villagers being more sufficient without borrowing money from informal loans. 

 

The government is preparing the country for an ageing society, particularly enhancing the healthcare system for bed-ridden patients as well as the land rights and welfare campaigns for low-income earners, with the goal to have 400,000 retailers participating in this campaign in the future.

Marvelous! Why not promise to stamp out original sin while he is at it? Utterly ridiculous and totally unbelievable thing to say, though I guess there are some out there stupid enough to believe it. Poverty is not going away here, at least not for a very long time and probably never.

OMG .... This sounds too much like "Make Thailand Great Again". I don't think there's enough room for two huge, dilusional hot air balloons at the same time. Dream on.

I don't think there is a country on the planet that has wiped out poverty, but Prayut is going to do it in Thailand of all places in 8 months? I had thought Jesus with the bread and the fish was quite an impressive feat, but this will be nothing short of TRULY miraculous.

Eradicating poverty is something a Miss Universe would wish for after world peace. It wont happen. 

 

Then again Prayut is aiming this narrative at the poor, uneducated voters who might just swollow it like it is their last meal.

Is he planning to use the same poverty eradication system that made so many officials rich?

I'm sure one of the hot air balloons will deny Thailand needs to be made great "again" as it never lost it's standing in the world. "Greater" maybe.

Didn't Thaksin say something like, 'Vote for me (or Yingluck) and you will all be rich in a year ...'?

It's amazing how the junta - sworn enemies of Thaksin - are aping so many of his words, actions and gestures.

Except that - the poor Thais, in general, really do love Thaksin (who DID start to change their lives) - but at best ENDURE Prayut.

That's a "national security issue" that cannot be discussed.

In an other topic they were talking about new laws against fake news. I would say they have to charge themselves with spreading fake news.
