Title: Suddenly… it becomes heavier.
On weightlifter: Government
On blue barbell: Politics
On red barbell: Economy

[While the junta is trying to handle economic challenges, now they have to deal with the political problem of Deputy PM Prawit luxury watch and diamond ring which seems to suggest sources of undeclared wealth.
As Deputy PM Prawit is probably the most powerful figure in the junta and the junta holds power by sheer force, he cannot be removed from the cabinet unless he wants to go.
This situations clashes with the government’s pledges that is above reproach and is setting an example of good governance.]
