Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha yesterday chaired the opening of the “National Fund for People ... Reduce Poverty and Inequality” forum, along with Deputy PM Somkid Jatusripitak, PM’s Office Minister Suwapan Tanyuwattana and Director of the National Village and Urban Community Fund Office Natee Klibthong.

 

In his opening speech, the PM said that over the past three years, the government had injected more than Bt70 billion into the National Village Fund for about 200,000 projects. He claimed it would bring Bt39 billion in cash flow to the economy and Bt8.5 billion in profit to the communities.

In most countries this would be seen as a brazen attempt to influence voters...some might even call it buying votes...

 

Oh, that's right, they did not hand them the money as they came to vote...nothing to see here...

And there you have it. Money passed down to village leaders that will never be accounted for and very unlikely to ever get to the regular citizen. Corruption all the way down to the local level, everyone getting their cut and all unlikely to care about this so called free and fair election.

Not a very lucrative investment.  Our village built a sports centre a few years ago - grandstand, soccer field, oval track, tennis court and administration centre.  I have been here 6 years and I have actually seen it being used one time!  That was the tennis court.  The rest of the area is slowly being reclaimed by mother nature.  The problem appears that the facility is located at the extreme west end of the village so it is 'off the beaten path' . A wise use of a village grant!

He should have stepped down as PM while in a political party, and this action should be deemed as illegal and his party disbanded. It is just wrong.

Interesting use of the word "tout". According to most dictionaries, this is quite derogatory, both as a verb or a noun. e.g. " attempt to sell ( something) , typically by pestering people in an aggressive or bold manner" or "to solicit patronage" " to solicit, peddle, or persuade importunately". Take your pick.
