Words from Chalerm

From Thairath, October 1, 2012
Left: When he was an opposition…
Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Ubamrung: Mrs. Muam stated clearly in her will that the land belongs to the temple. It can’t be traded. If I have a an opportunity to work in a  government, I’ll get it back!
Right: When he is in the government…
Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Ubamrung: What I said was only my tactics for my election campaign.

[Mrs. Nuam refers to Mrs. Nuam Chamnanchatsakda, owner of a piece of land in Pathumthani which she donated to a temple. The land was later illegally sold to the Alpine Golf Course. The case involved several politicians during the government of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, including former Deputy Prime Minister and former Interior Minister Yongyuth Wichadit who had to recently resign from his political posts because of the case.]
