General Prem praises the prime minister for his strong leadership

Privy Council president General Prem Tinsulanonda on Monday praised Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha for his leadership and trustworthiness.

General Prem heaped praise on Prime Minister Prayut when the latter led members of his cabinet and the National Council for Peace and Order and commanders of the three armed forces and the police force to make a courtesy call on him and to receive his blessings on the eve of Songkran festival.

General Prem reportedly told his visitors to take pride in their roles to serve the country and the people regardless of the resentment of some people toward his administration.

In responding to General Prem's commendation, the prime minister vowed to do the best he could to serve the country and the people with honesty and in line with good governance.

It has been a tradition for many years that the privy council president opens his residence to receive well wishers who flock to visit him to express their well wishes to him and, at the same time, to receive his blessings in return.
