Legal actions should be taken against UNP also because the law should be equally applied for all.But we do not like to see Buddhist monks appearing for these sort activities. Lord Buddha has clearly advised them not engage with dethis katha since that can harm their noble path and whole Buddhism. These days we see Buddhist monks in each and every protests.court cases,riot. It seems that they are going after cheap politics and some want to appear in TV and newspapers disregarding what they are supposed to do
