Audio: BJP calls for unity among party leaders

14 July 2015 10:43 am - 23     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa should not treat each other as enemies when contesting the general elections, Bodu Jana Peramuna (BJP) Leader and BBS General Secretary Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera said today.

He asked former President Chandrika Kumaranatunga not to treat Mahinda Rajapaksa with enmity and that Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Udaya Gammanpila, Champika Ranawake, Wimal Weerawansa and the JVP should forget their political differences and treat each other with respect and honour.

“We should consider these people as Sri Lankans and should work under a national policy for at least two years. Party leaders should cooperate with each other because if not it will be catestrophic for Sri Lanka,” the Thera said.

He recalled that in 1815 the country was handed over to the British on an agreement.

“A repetition seems likely after 200 years during and after the election,” the Thera said.

He said the BJP had submitted nomination lists for 16 of the 22 districts. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    With what gumption can he ask others to treat Weerawansa and Gammanpila with respect and honour - two undesirables.

    Rev. Gnanassara is the only Guardian of Sinhala Budhdhim and the Sinhalese in the world.What he is trying is to unite all the Sinhalese leaders to protect the only Sinhala nation in the world from the dangers of the ignorant and uncivilised religions of Islam and Christians.To achieve this end he should be allowed to maintain highest job to operate Sinhala Budhist Police Force and keep to keep. Christians and the Muslims under control

    You leave politics and do better jobs... perhaps try to understand the values of Buddhism.

    If he is a spiritual leader functioning under the supervision of a Mahanayake Thera he should name that Mahanayake Thera. If he himself is a self proclaimed leader of all Buddhists in this country he could make a declaration to that effect too.

    He first divided and oppressed fellow Sri Lankans with his racial slurs and hate crimes. Now with this failing miserably, he has taken to conceal his real colours in the guise of a more peaceful stand. Surely the Sri Lankan people are not stupid to believe that he has mended his violent racial ideologies. The leopard cannot change its spots no matter how much it tries to conceal them.

    @ Franklin Silva, it is the likes of you , obtuse chauvinistic, ignorant fools. Have you not even had a secondary education to make comments like uncivilised religious. I truly hope that you do not have children, because seed such as yours should be stopped from populating this world.

    It sound like the BBS General Secretary Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera has become a Buddhist.
