The Bodu Bala Sena today said that it was even ready to contest at the forthcoming Presidential Election independently, saying that its decision depended on how parties gave prominence to Buddhism.


“We have four options: to support the present government, to support the opposition, to remain neutral, to contest in the forthcoming Presidential Election,” BBS Secretary Ven. Galagoda Atthe Gnanasara Thera said.


“We are ready to go even for the last option, after carefully monitoring the election manifestoes of various parties. We will decide depending on how the political parties give prominence to Buddhism,” he said.


Speaking at a media conference in Colombo, Ven. Gnansara Thera said that his organisation remained vigilant about the peoples’ opinion and intended to take appropriate decision at the right time.


However, they were still not definite of contesting and if contested they expect to gain at least 100,000 votes, he said.
“We would obtain at least 100,000 votes and through that we can a make a change,” the Thera said. (Sanath Desmond)
