Pheu Thai has already shown it can't be trusted to keep promises, says criticJatuporn Prompan, a former red shirt leader and now a fierce critic of the Pheu Thai Party, makes a point during a television interview in August. Mr Jatuporn, 58, said the government had also revised the wallet policy amid growing criticism, including an about-face on its financing. Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin had said earlier that no loan would be procured to execute the flagship policy, Mr Jatuporn noted. Mr Srettha even posted a copy of a front-page story from the Bangkok Post on his X account to underscore his message. The more hurtful “wound” would be for the measure to attract insufficient support from coalition parties in parliament, Mr Jatuporn added.
