Remembering the Thaksin Years: Stop Corruption Before a Disaster Happens

From Thairath, December 18, 2002
Cartoon title: Stop… Before disaster!
On the jacket of the man: Transportation [This is Suriya Juengrungruangkij, transportation minister in Thaksin’s cabinet.]
On the front windshield of train: Corruption
On the right side of train: State Railway of Thailand

[Here, reference is made to attempts to reform the highly politicized State Railway of Thailand which was decades behind the times in technology. Also during the Thai Rak Thai era, mass transit projects came to a halt as the government attempted to stop further contracts from going to companies aligned or controlled by the opposition.]
