JVP Up In Arms Against Bodu Bala Sena

The JVP in a strongly worded statement denounced the actions of the Bodu Bala Sena, stating that the fact that the monks of the Bodu Bala Sena acted with impunity in front of Police officials who were present is indication of state patronage to their actions.

The statement signed by the Politburo said that yesterdays storming of a press conference organised by the Jathika Bala Sena and the subsequent abuse and threat was an attack on reconcilliation and national unity.

"The fact that all this happened while the Police were present with no action being taken is indicative of the power these violent forces possess" the statement said.
The statement also said that the actions of the BBS would set a bad precedent in the country which would result in chaos and anarchy.
"The government should take all action to prevent incidents of this sort which is a threat to democracy and national unity" it said
