A former United Thai Nation (UTN) electoral candidate has asked former Move Forward party leader Pita Limjaroenrat to stop interfering with the government in the effort to help Thais in Israel, pointing out that it is none of his business.
In his Facebook post yesterday (Sunday), in response to Pita’s offer of assistance, Shinapat Kitlertsiriwattana, former UTN candidate for Chiang Mai’s Constituency 1, said that Pita’s claim that he called the Israeli ambassador to Thailand on Saturday night, expressing his condolences for the Israeli people and offering his support for the Israeli government to ease the conflict for the safety of Thai people in Israel, will only cause confusion among the Thai people there and will not help improve the situation “because you are neither the prime minister (of Thailand) nor a party leader nor an MP and should let the government do their job.”
“It is none of your business. This is not the time for fame seeking,” said Shinapat, as he advised Pita to carry on with selling dreams to the young people “until they wake up”.
In his post on X on Saturday night, Pita said that, after having talked with the Israeli ambassador to Thailand, he instructed Suthep, a former House labour affairs committee member of the Move Forward party, to coordinate with Thais in Israeli.
He also gave his email address to families of Thai workers who cannot contact their loved ones in Israel, so he could contact the Israeli embassy or the Thai Foreign Ministry to get help.
