Re: ''Abbot's bid to claim school plot draws fire'' (BP, March 15). This is yet another example of one man's greed. In this case, it is the abbot of Wat Srieam in question.
There is no reason why the temple and the school cannot continue to co-exist as they have in the past. There is also no written law as far as I can discover, that a temple must have 6 rai of land, as the abbot claims.
There are many tiny, one-room temples scattered throughout the Kingdom that are run by a few monks on tiny plots of land, and both the monks and villagers are happy and all get along.
