"We want the health minister - and the ministry- to have a clear standing and policy to push forward the alcohol sale ban for the coming Songkran festival," he said.
Kamron said the government should pressure the national alcohol control committee and the control policy committee, so that enforcement of the law and strict restrictions on alcohol sales and consumption can get underway.
"We agree with the health ministry [proposal] to put warning pictures and messages on alcohol bottles" similar to those on tobacco products, he said.
Wittaya said he would present the group's demands to ban alcohol on Buddhist Days to the national alcohol control policy next month. After this meeting, he would issue regulations banning alcohol sales during that period.
