Minister Wimal Weerawansa says that he is not prepared to accept the challenged made by the Bodu Bala Senaa.

 

Minister Wimal Weerawansa said at a function recently held in Lidula that it had been revealed that a Buddhist organization working against the Muslim community had held links with the Tamil diaspora.

 

The Bodu Bala Senaa responded to this at a media briefing convened in Colombo yesterday.

 

On this occasion Bodu Bala Senaa general secretary Venerable Galagoda-Atthe Gnaanasaara Thero thus threw down a challenge to Minister Wimal Weerawansa that he makes the relevant disclosure immediately if, as per the Minister’s allegation the Bodu Bala Senaa had obtained money from the Norwegian Government.
