Taking a bet against the caretaker govt

The boss of CAPO said that "Narong had made the wrong bet", but was this the truth? All parties have agreed that there should be reforms.

Dr Narong's (Health) Ministry has already put forward a series of reforms as a positive contribution. If Chalerm wants to cajole Dr Narong he needs to make a good argument to do so and make a positive contribution to the reform process himself.

In any event why is Mr Chalerm wasting time on this? He is an essential witness to the rice pledging case because he is identifying corruption and needs more time to do so. One might suspect that it is taking too long to reevaluate the evidence
