A group of whistle-blowing villagers appeared to be lying in wait for caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra when she went to visit the Bueng Chawak Aquarium in Suphan Buri yesterday.
She was in the province to follow up on the development of the tourist attraction and learn about inland fisheries.
Though there was a group of supporters to greet her, some People’s Democratic Reform Council (PDRC) supporters were also waiting and blew whistles at her.
The PM, who was in a wheelchair after twisting her ankle last week, was warmly welcomed by Chart Thai Pattana de facto leader Banharn Silapa-archa, caretaker Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Yukol Limlamthong, Deputy Premier Plodprasop Suraswadi and Suphan Buri Governor Supeepat Chongpanish.
While wheeling Yingluck’s chair into the aquarium, Banharn said he was delighted to welcome the prime minister to his province.
However, he added, “I feel sorry for the prime minister because she is stuck in a crucial political situation. The country is in a deadlock.”
When asked about the best solution, Banharn smiled and said: “Please ask the Constitutional Court.”
