PM appeals to the people to have trust in him

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha on Tuesday appealed to the Thai people to have trust in the laws of the land and to refrain from fighting one another, saying that such fight, when reported by foreign media, will leave a bad impression among foreigners towards the country.

He said he wanted the people to feel the way he now feels with the late King Bhumibol. I feel that he (HM the King) has always been with us and will remain so, will never leave us and will stay in our hearts.

The prime minister urged the public in general to make use of the late King’s advice, statements or anything which was used or tried by the prime minister, for their benefits.

He claimed that the practice of sufficiency economy philosophy in the past several years had helped the country survive several crises such as the tom yum kung financial meltdown and the huge flood four years ago. The achievements in overcoming the crises have impressed foreign governments and the public, he said.

Prime Minister Prayut asked the public to have trust in his government and himself, saying that he had done his best so far to ensure peace and safety for the people.
