Prayuth says populist schemes will not go on forever

Junta chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha said Friday that the populist schemes will continue on a temporary basis only to alleviate the people's hardship.

"They will be temporary rather than so excessive that people choke on them," Prayuth said while chairing a budget meeting in a live telecast session.

He said the National Council for Peace and Order understood populist issues well.

"We have carried out them with understanding and not lacking in understanding, as critics have said," Prayuth added.
