Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan on Monday rebuked key Pheu Thai figure Sudarat Keyuraphan’s public invitation for people to plant and deliver calendula flowers during the funeral of His Majesty the late King, saying the campaign was not appropriate.

Sudarat was seen on social media riding a vehicle advocating the planting of calendula flowers and their delivery for the King’s funeral.

The Deputy PM said Sudarat’s campaign was merely self promotion. People should know that this was not an appropriate time to engage in any political activities and they should use their judgment, Prawit said.

Prawit said he wated to emphasise that such an activity could not be held. He would send officers to talk to Sudarat about appropriateness while urging other politicians to refrain from similar activities.
