Ref: "Chadchart denies planning to run for Bangkok governor's post", News, March 15.
Now I fully understand why caretaker Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt’s mother cried when he decided to join the Yingluck-led government in 2012, (The Nation, February 16, “People in the News”).
In declining the recent push for him to run for Bangkok governor, he was humble enough to recognise the difficulty of this position and the uncertain chance of winning the post even though he is the only popular minister in this embattled government.
His mother was right to cry because among all the ministers in the current crisis he is the only one talking sense instead of the bombastic and illogical statements from the premier and her henchmen.
If I were him, I would try to untangle myself from this association of guilt. As they always say, believe in your mother’s warning.
