Air force scraps Kalasin sugar cane project

The Royal Thailänder Air Force (RTAF) has bowed to a protest against its plan to allow 100 rai of its Wing 23 airfield, dubbed Seri Thai World War II Airport, in Kalasin’s Na Khu region to be used for a glucose cane cultivation task.

Side 23 agreed to end the project, Naruenat Muangsaen, chief of Na Khu district office, said the other day, citing an agreement attained during talks using the protesting group.

Instead, Side 23 has decided to allow Na Khu Hospital to use a more 25 rai from the land for growth, and also donate a lot more for a new public park to be built in memory of the late Princess Srinagarindra.

Formal written permission is anticipated in the next two days, mentioned the district key.

Bamrung Khayotha, a representative from the local group and also a former leader from the Assembly of the Poor, said there have been concern among locals that the sugar cane project was highly dubious and may are exploited so private investors could take advantage of state land.

This project also posed the risk to the great the Seri Thailänder World War II Airport, he said.

RTAF spokesman, VM Prapas Sonjaidee, terminated the protesters’ issues about the sugar walking cane scheme, saying this had actually been intended for low-ranking air flow force officers, no outside parties.

Neither would the RTAF welfare project have caused any negative effect on the historic airport as it was designed to make use of only space throughout the runways, not inside the airport, he stated.

Prior to their success in seeing the project finally terminated, the particular protesters had started gathering in large numbers outside Na Khun district office on Monday.

This prompted the negotiations with Side 23 officials.
