Rajitha Accuses Of Gnanasara Thera Of Holding Talks With LTTE

Fisheries Minister Rajitha Senarathne has accused BBS General Secretary Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera of holding secret discussions with supporters of the LTTE.

He also said that UNP Parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake “facilitated” the meetings between the BBS and the supporters of the LTTE. The Minister said he even had photos to prove that the BBS stalwarts had met LTTE supporters of the Tamil Diaspora. He made these revelations in a Radio interview with Neth FM last night (02).

However, speaking to Asian Mirror, UNP Parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake flatly denied the allegation and said he did not “facilitate” any meeting with the BBS and LTTE supporters of the Tamil Diaspora.

Minister Senarathne, a strong critique of the BBS, had previously told that the BBS was the “armed wing” of the Buddha Sasana. He had often dubbed the BBS as a “terrorist organization”. After the clashes which occurred in Beruwala and Aluthgama, Senarathne said, stern action should be taken against those who were involved in violence, regardless of their positions.

The BBS on several occasions had alleged that Minister Senarathne was a supporter of Muslims.

The video of Minister Senarathne’s statement is posted below.
