Woman’s protest bath to call attention to hometown’s potholes results in success

After a woman bathed in a man-sized pothole weeks ago to call the government’s attention to the road work needed in her hometown in Tak province, the potholes have been patched up and the road is now smooth and danger-free.

Yesterday, the Governor of Tak Provincial Administrative Organization, Nathawut Thaweekeuakunit, declared the road complete and that the repairs cost around THB2 million.

So, it seems that the photos posted by the transgender model, only identified as “Palmy,” were a very successful way to get results.

Due to Palmy’s effort, the officials surveyed the entire province to see if there are other roads that need to be fixed.

However, Palmy’s mother, Songduen Kusoltrakulpatchara, worried that her daughter’s action might bring trouble to local officials after she heard that Prayuth Chan-ocha might take action against them for the state of the roads, reported Thairath.
