Privy councillor Surayud Chulanont on Thursday denied speculation that he supports the anti-Thaksin Pitak Siam Group, which plans to hold an anti-government rally on Aug 4. 

He admitted to being a classmate of Adm Chai Suwannapap, a core leader of the Pitak Siam Group, at Class 1 of the Armed Forces Academy Preparatory School, but said they had not met since their retirement.
