The Bodu Bala sena (BBS) Organisation today said that it would meet the Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya tomorrow to request on forming a new political party backed by the BBS.

BBS Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dilantha Vithanage said they had had several phone conversations with Mr. Deshapriya in this regard and would meet him today to make an official request on forming a political party.    

“BBS will back the new political party, but will continue to remain as an apolitical organisation. Buddhist monks will guide and provide instructions to the political party. However, the candidates will be laymen,” Vithanage said adding they had yet to decide on a name and a symbol for the party.

    It is their silly target exposed in the right time. They talked racism to make them popular in the public. Now they can take few seats as they think. what remains? which they disregarded Buddhism among themselves.

    BBS worked very hard to defeat MR during last election, now your moves will help to get rid off MR from the political arena...... good move toward wonder of Asia

    This is a good move by BBS. This new party should contest all the electoral seats of the country so that government could earn more money from the deposits that will be forfeited due to less than 100 votes gained per seat.

    charitable is not the appropriate adjective. Insane is the correct word.

    The political party would be the front organisation to the BBS in as much TNA was the front organisation for the LTTE.

    BBS members were fed, clothed and educated by charitable Sinhalese Buddhists. Now BSS wants this charity to be extended to giving them the votes.

    Great! That way people can see what little support you have. Racist thugs.

    God bless Sri Lanka and the minorities.

    And thus behold the fall of Buddhism, its values and the teachings of the great lord Buddha.

    josh Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:30 PM

    they will back the political party but will remain a-political? Its like saying i will help you kill a person but i wont become a murderer...

    Sincere Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:29 PM

    Will they name it "Abasarana Party"?

    Rajani Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:16 PM
