Pretty in pink: Army chief proposes curtains for bunkers

In response to the caretaker premier's concerns that the presence of soldiers' bunkers may impact the image of the Thai capital, Army chief Prayuth Chanocha has suggested the bunkers be decorated with flowers or pink curtains.

Prayuth said he will consider improving the look of the bunkers but stressed they were still needed to provide protection for the people.

Caretaker premier Yingluck Shinawatra recently expressed her concerns during a meeting with Prayuth and other top brass about the issues. She asked them to consider improving the bunkers and do something about the presence of soldiers carrying weapons in the capital.
