The rice scheme is like donating to the poor

From Manager, June 20, 2013
Panthongtae Shinawatra: Won’t you donate your tax for helping our ‘relatives’ who are the poorest in country to have better lives?
Left to right are PM Yingluck Shinawatra, Minister of Commerce Boonsong Teriyapirom, Yaowapa Wongsawat and Deputy Minister of Commerce Nattawut Saikua.
Caption: Oak changed only one word… then it is correct!

[Thaksin’s son Panthongtae, whose nickname is Oak, posted on his Facebook calling for people to support the rice pledging scheme. He said that a tax paid by people is like a donation to help a farmer.
The cartoon alleges that the Shinawatra family must be profiting from the scheme. Here his aunt Yaowapa, having a big belly from eating rice (referring to corruption), enjoys the most benefit from this scheme.]
