Might is Right seems the culture of Thailand, Every department are engaged in grabbing land. It does not matter what type of the departments are they. Irrigation, Army, Mining, Water resource management, Road development Authority and Local Administrative Authorities. They are all engaged in grabbing land either by hook or by crook. It seems that these departments use to think that they are the owner of public land and even also the owner of private lands, they are not going to except this, that they are the custodians not the owner.
There working style seems very authoritarian type, they never use to think that, what ever they are going to do whether it will be fruitful for the people and country or not. Lets see some of their decisions which resulted as problem for local residents.

A team of scientists from the department of marine science at Kasetsart University, last year conducted a survey of crabs in the southern provinces of Nakhon Si Thammarat, Songkhla and Satun.
They were examining the extent of biodiversity along the coastline.
Puntip Wisespongpand, chief of the crab survey project, said she discovered the new species last November when her team visited the site.
The crab is 15 millimetres long and 14 millimetres wide, has cream-coloured legs and a blue-grey shell, and lives in loamy sand.
Uncertain of what it was, she sent samples to scientists in Singapore and Australia. "We have received an initial confirmation that the sample is a new species of giant soldier crab.
"However, we need to wait for the DNA result to make sure," Ms Puntip said.
She said the team has not officially named the new species but they will settle on calling it the Soldier Crab of Pak Bara for now. Thailand has about 800 species of crab, though no study has been done of their number or habitat.
Ms Puntip said she was worried about the future of the new species' habitat.
The proposed Pak Bara deep-sea port, now at the feasibility study stage, could pose another threat. The crab's habitat lies in the area which would be developed for the port, which is likely to lead to an expansion of petrochemical industry in the South.
