Statements must be probed – Dilan Perera
By Faadhila Thassim
An investigation must be carried out in regard to a statement made by Secretary General of Bodu Bala Sena, Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera, of a possible terrorist attack similar to the Easter Sunday attacks, SLPP MP Dilan Perera said.
He added the basis of these statements could only be revealed by an investigation, otherwise, in the event of such attack, Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera would blame the Government.
“National security within the country is in a good state and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has pledged to ensure that national security is prioritised,” he said adding that however there are those in the Opposition who are backstabbing the opposition leader to become the next presidential candidate.
He said that they are on a mission to create tensions between Sinhalese and the Catholic Church. He further said what is actually needed is a national agenda for a 10-15 year period which is acceptable by all parties and communities adding that such agenda should not be altered with the change of Presidents or Governments.
