The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Organisation today rejected the National Unity Government concept, and urged Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to clarify the difference between Nationalism (Jathika Wadaya) and Racism (Jathi Wadaya).

BBS General Secretary Ven. Galagodatte Gnanasara Thera said the people including the legislators were confused about nationalism and racism. “The legislators will regret it if they label us as racists,” he said. 

The BBS said Prime Minister had recently made a speech warning individuals and organisations especially that of media institutions not promote racism. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
