Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary Ven. Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara Thera told that he will not pay compensation to Minister Rajitha Senaratne.
Gnanasara Thera added that he has not received a letter of demand said to have sent by the Minister, thus far.
“So far I haven’t got any letter. Though I get that, I won’t pay compensation to the Minister,” said Gnanasara Thera.
However, Minister Senaratne said that he will sue the Thera, unless he gets a positive answer, on this matter.
Minister Senaratne has sent the letter of demand, demanding one billion rupee compensation, over the abusive statements made against him at a press conference held in Colombo on 5 August.
General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena organization Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara Thera said at the press conference that it would complain to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Bribery Commission, as it possesses enough evidence to prove that the Minister is a bribe taker and conspires to destroy Buddhism in Sri Lanka.
