The Metropolitan Police Bureau and City Hall were at odds on Monday over ongoing anti-government rallies, after a senior officer questioned whether officials are taking necessary measures to prevent protesters from occupying a public space at Uruphong intersection on Rama VI Road.
It began with a letter from MPB commissioner Kamronwit Thoopkrajangsent to Bangkok governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra questioning the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration's (BMA) handling of the Uruphong rally.
