By Skandha Gunasekara

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) yesterday  criticised Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, charging that he had failed to resolve the communal unrest in a swift manner, despite being both the Prime Minister and Minister of Law and Order.

BBSGeneral Secretary Ven. GalabodaAththe Gnanasara therasaid that the Prime Minister had failed miserablyin his posts and should have taken stronger action to prevent the clashes that unfolded during the last several days. 

The monk then charged that the Premier was using the crisis situation for his own political gain.

“He is stuck with the Central Bank Bond scam. There was a No-Confidence motion to be brought against him in Parliament this week. He is using this to avoid these political problems and blaming the BBS,”said the controversial monk.

The BBS General Secretary also lashed out at Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna member Ajith Prasanna,

“Ajith Prasanna is a madman. He has political support so he slings mud at us. He is a leech who using this to gain popularity,” he said. 

The BBS has staunchly rejected allegations of fomenting anti-Muslim sentiment in Sri Lanka by engaging in hate speech and having links with extremist organisations, along with deepening ethnic tensions over the last few years.
