Celebrating the good deeds of the late Gen. Prem Tinsulanonda


Bangkok,13 August 2019 (NNT) – The Governor of Songhkla and members of the Faculty of Medicine, Prince of Songkla University, are engaged in a project to promote the good deeds of the late Privy Council President and Statesman, Gen. Prem Tinsulanonda, to be presented to the Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, before the weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday (Aug 13). The project is to include activities, such as building a heart surgery center to treat patients in the 14 southern provinces and the holding of a “Gratitude to Motherland” charity run.

The Prime Minister has also observed an exhibition presented by the SUPPORT Arts and Crafts International Center of Thailand (SACICT). The event was held to promote Thai handicrafts and celebrate His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phra Vajiraklaochaoyuhua’s 67th birthday on July 28 this year, and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit the Queen Mother’s 87th birthday on August 12.

The Prime Minister said these activities will create pride for the people and urged members of the media to help promote them. He then received a pillow and a traditional bag for “storing goodness” as souvenirs. The Prime Minister said that the bag would not be able to store all the goodness created if everyone performs good deeds. He later joined a group photo session with the event organizers who gave him their moral support. He responded that he won’t tire of working because there are many good people who assist him with his work.

When a reporter asked him whether a meeting with the 10 small coalition parties will be held this Thursday, Gen. Prayut briefly replied: “Not yet.” Asked whether such a meeting will take place, he said some people are probably discussing the issue already.
