About 40 students of the New Generation Kids Don’t Gamble network rallied outside the Ministry of Finance demanding the government to cease lottery-vending-machine scheme.
The students network submitted a complaint letter to Deputy Finance Minister Tanusak Lekuthai to oppose the lottery-vending-machine scheme. They also brought 30 big black boxes with messages such as “Take back your lottery -vending -machine” and “We don’t need lottery-vending machine” to the ministry.
Ramkhamhaeng University student PornpenThianpaisal, the network’s coordinator said the network opposed the government’s plan of offering gambling to the youth. They didn’t appreciate the move that will cause false values and social issues as well as they believed that the scheme will not solve the problems of overpriced lottery tickets or underground betting.
