‘Yingluck’ receives morale boost in the countryside


BANGKOK, 20 December Prime Minister and Defense Minister Yingluck Shinawatra exclaimed she felt better with moral support in Thailand’s countryside.

The Premier traveled to Wat Buraphaphiram temple in Roi Et province in order to make merit and received a warm welcome from local crowds in the area.

Ms. Yingluck also paid her respects to the 68-meter-tall Buddha statue named Phra Buddha Rattana Mongkol Maha Muni.

Before heading out, the Prime Minister exchanged small talks with the temple’s abbot – saying her work at this point in time has been a bit strenuous. The abbot responded with well wishes and told her not to be disheartened by the current situation.
