Young woman called to police station for telling PM to retire


A YOUNG woman who told Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha that if he could not develop the country quickly he should retire quickly was today (Dec. 4) called to the police station to record her action, Sanook.com said.

The incident occurred on Wednesday Dec. 1 during the Prime Minister’s visit to Kham Chanot Wang Nakhin temple at Ban Dung district, Udon Thani province.

Ms Nong Ying, 28, a noodle vendor, said to Gen. Prayut as he passed by that she wanted to see a lot of development but if it could not be done then the Prime Minister should retire quickly.

Gen. Prayut then turned around and asked, “What?”

Nong Ying repeated that if he could not develop quickly then retire quickly.

Gen. Prayut then told her to go have a look at all that was previously quickly accomplished and how much the Northeast region had developed.

Nong Ying said today when she heard about the Prime Minister’s visit she rode out there with three youngsters to state her stance that he should retire because in her opinion nothing had been accomplished.

Asked if she was not afraid of speaking to the Prime Minister, Nong Ying said she was not because she did not speak rudely nor insult him but wanted him to know what today’s younger generation thought.

She added that he should open a Facebook page to receive public comments and not hide.

As for the police recording her action, she said she did not know what wrongdoing she had committed that had to be recorded.
