A network of monks provinces including Surin, Khon Kaen, Chanthaburi and Trat petitioned the National Committee for Alcohol Consumption Control, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Sanan Kachornprasart, to make the public holidays of Makha Bucha Day, Asarnha Bucha Day, Visakha Bucha Day and Buddhist Lent Day, declared alcohol-free days.

The network claimed that Major General Sanan's committee favored the alcohol-free days, but that Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva had not pushed for it.
