PHUKET: Just hours after the Phuket Governor this morning (Apr 23) held a press conference to specifically explain that Phuket is not suffering a drought crisis, about 80 residents from Rassada staged a protest in front of Phuket Provincial Hall over the lack of water supply to their community.

 

The residents massed in front of Phuket Provincial Hall at 3pm, shouting anti-Governor slogans and carrying placards heavily criticising the lack of action by officials to solve the water shortage situation.

The governor was probably busy signing off on another huge housing estate, resort, hotel or similar because its what the island, the people and the fresh water situation need.....

Hotels are given the water. Residents have to suffer for tourism's sake. 

Money talks.
