Soon after Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha denied that his government believed in superstition, a rare bird fight that brought demise to a pigeon took place right in front of his office.
While faith in the supernatural is blended with Thai tradition, Prayut insisted that a series of "unusualness" happening around Government House from last week had nothing to do with him. But he then said that he would not disrespect these incidents.
"We are people of Thailand 4.0. These things happened by natural causes. Yet, we also don't look down on those superstitious incidents," the premier said.
