Referring to MP Ranjan Ramanayake's audio clips which have gone viral on social media, Ven. Elle Gunawansa Thera said yesterday there was an international conspiracy behind the series of events to carry out some hidden agenda.

He told that international communities were carefully eyeing Sri Lanka because of its strategic location and other economic advantages and were making use some Sri Lanka political figures to for this purpose.

"It is evident with the audio clips that there is an agenda to make things happen according to the whims and fancies of Western forces,” the Thera said.

He said another motive was to create chaos in the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary so that the country end up in anarchy.

People are living in uncertainty with the current state of affairs in the country in terms of Judiciary being in hot water with the release of the controversial audio clips.

“The sequence of events show the nudity of the people who have been engaged in the audio clips,” he said. “Therefore, it is absolutely fitting to take appropriate action against them without creating further chaos."

The Thera said people should be vigilant enough about such individuals and make use of their vote in a wise manner to elect their representatives to Parliament. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Every Monk is a politician now, It is better if 225 Monks are nominated to parliament and another Monk is appointed President.

    Or maybe an intergalactic conspiracy. The aliens were also conspiring against the Rajapaksa clan.

    There was a clip about your life :)

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Saturday, 11 January 2020 08:12 AM

    I think Elle Gunawansa is an international conspiracy.

    Ramal Saturday, 11 January 2020 09:16 AM

    We know.. it was known long before Ranjan’s clips. Damage control

    DHA Saturday, 11 January 2020 09:32 AM

    Haaaa ! Joke of the day

    Jude Saturday, 11 January 2020 09:35 AM

    Here we GO again!!!

    K Perera Saturday, 11 January 2020 09:49 AM

    Yes.. Possibly an Intergalactic conspiracy.

    Kumar Dissanayake Saturday, 11 January 2020 09:55 AM

    What? Another international conspiracy? Yeah, Right! Our country will never be deficient in jokers.

    Andrew Silva Saturday, 11 January 2020 11:18 AM

    Just let the people responsible attend to the problem and you as a Buddhist Priest teach the Lord Buddhas ways to the people and set them in the correct path.

    Sokrates Saturday, 11 January 2020 11:46 AM

    In their arrogant national pride, these racist monks overestimate the importance of Sri Lanka on the international stage. Sri Lanka is economically insignificant for almost all countries and strategically seen, Sri Lanka can be bypassed. These conspiracy theories are absolutely stupid and testify to a pronounced delusion of persecution that should be treated medically.

    Jasmin Saturday, 11 January 2020 07:05 PM

    Dear sokrates, you should be the first to be treated medicaly for exhibiting your gross ignorance about geo politics

    Don Juwan Saturday, 11 January 2020 11:51 AM

    Ven. Gunawanse,don't you have anything more to say about the video clip that mentions your name?

    Jasmin Saturday, 11 January 2020 07:13 PM

    Dear buddhist monks, can you kindly retrain from making political comments and please stick to preaching buddhism only. Its getting more and more unbearable listening to you and other over zealous monks getting more and more involved in topics that are not related to Buddhism in any way. Let the clowns in politics stew in their filth and you stick to spreading the damma.

    Moda Buruwa Saturday, 11 January 2020 08:50 PM

    What is the purpose of becoming a Buddhist monk ! . To preach lies , getting to active politics and destroy a nation , I believe .

    jayt Saturday, 11 January 2020 11:12 PM

    I like to challenge your statement.
