'Champika, Rathana Thera responsible for Gnanasara Thera's actions'

16 June 2017 06:15 pm - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) said today Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka and MP Athureliya Rathana Thera should take responsibility for its General Secretary Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera intervening in various matters in the country.

“Gnanasara Thera would have turned even more violent had he accepted the contracts given by Minister Ranawaka and Rathana Thera,” BBS CEO Dilanthe Vithanage told a news conference.

He said they had prompted Gnanasara Thera to incite violence to achieve their political goals.

“No one talks about the real issues which he raises in public,” Mr. Vithanage said.

Sinhala Ravaya General Secretary Magalkande Sudaththa Thera said the Government was trying to label Gnanasara Thera as another Prabhakaran.

“The joint opposition paints the BBS as a front of the Government while the Government the BBS as a JO front. The Government also blamed the BBS saying the BBS was created by former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa to pave the way for him to contest the 2020 presidential election. On the other hand the JO said the BBS was created to support Minister Champika Ranawaka to do the same,” he said.  (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    In real terms all are power centered politicians, including saffron robed civilians.

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Saturday, 17 June 2017 11:20 AM

    What the BBS spokesmen are saying is that Gnanasara is not responsible for his actions but Champika and Rathana Thera are. So in other words, Gnanasara is a puppet,or robot or idiot who dances when others pull the strings.
