At a news conference held today, the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Organisation said it would give its unconditional support to President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the upcoming presidential election.
BBS General Secretary Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera said President Rajapaksa and common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena were good citizens.
“The country has to be our priority, not politics. The country is already in danger today. The opposition is filled with puppets. However, the people didn’t vote for this Government to loot the country,” he said.
The Thera said they had decided to back the President to save the country from various conspiracies.
