Thai PM new strategy:
Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha has found a unique way to avoid the Media questions. It is not that easy to answer the media and also it is difficult to tolerate the flow of the queries which posed by the journalists. He brought out a life-sized cardboard cutout of himself and placed before the reporters. He kept a mike in front of his cutout.
On Monday at a press conference, the Prime Minister of Thai Prayuth Chan-Ocha used a Life-sized cardboard cutout of himself to answer the Media. He said to the Journalists if you want to take the pictures and if you have any questions to ask me about Politics or conflicts you can ask this guy (cardboard cutout). All the media reporters were dumbfounded with his new strategy to avoid the media.
Thai PM came out of the government house to attend the Press conference outside the house in Bangkok. Media was started pouring the questions over the PM. The country in Financial crisis, what are the steps would you take toward it? question asked to the Prayuth by the media.
Media also asked about the violence in the south of the country. They expressed aggression about the increasing corruption in the country. Then the PM turned on his heel and walked off and left the press conference. Before saying bye to the press he kept a mike before his cut out and “If you want to ask any questions on politics or conflict,” he said, “ask this guy.”
The PM had spoken to the journalist earlier as a part of the event to promote the country’s upcoming Children’s Day but left before when he was asked about his promises in the elections and about the violence in the country.
“If you don’t have the ability to answer people’s questions, how can you solve people’s problems?” Phanuphong Thongfueang posted on Facebook.
