Agriculture Ministry continues staff shuffle in aid of Pracharat project
The Cabinet on Wednesday approved Agriculture Minister Krissada Boonraj’s request to transfer three more inspectors general to his ministry.
Transferred to the posts were Warawut Chuthamthat, deputy director-general of the Agriculture Department, Umolporn Pimolbutr, deputy director general of the Fishery Department, and Pramote Yajai, deputy director-general of the Land Development Department.
Krissada said he has also appointed 180 agricultural officials to the posts of deputy directors-general, junior directors, directors of provincial agricultural offices, chief agricultural officers for provinces and other posts carrying C9 and C8 ranks.
He said the latest round of his ministry’s reshuffling was the last one for this year and is aimed at driving the Pracharat development project.
Political observers believe the shuffle was made in preparation for next year’s general election.
