BBS to go to Bribery Comm. against Rajitha


The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Organisation today said that it would complain to the Bribery Commission as well as to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) about Minister Rajitha Senaratne.

BBS General Secretary, Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera, said that they had enough evidence to prove that the allegations against the minister were true.

According to the Thera, Minister Rajitha Senaratne had recently lashed out at the BBS and its monks and charged them with igniting the violence in Aluthgama and Beruwela.

“He had also claimed that Norway and a Parliamentarian from the opposition were backing our organisation. All these allegations are baseless. A minister has to be responsible and cannot make false allegations. We challenge him to prove these allegations,” Gnanasara Thera said.

He said that the minister should focus on his offenses without making baseless allegations against others. “We have not been taught to retaliate against those who make allegations against us but we are not ready to be subjected to false allegations,” he said.      

He said almost all the politicians and ministers were misusing public funds for their personal gain. “It is in our politicians’ blood to commit crimes and cheat the public. This has become a habit today,” the thera said.
