Rajitha questions Police delay to arrest BBS General Secretary

Cabinet spokesman Dr Rajitha Senaratne today questioned the delay by the Police to arrest the General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), the Venerable Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero.

Senaratne said that it is clear Gnanasara Thero is behind some of the latest incidents targeting Muslims.

The cabinet spokesman said that Gnanasara Thero cannot be compared to Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran.

He said that while everything Wigneswaran says cannot be accepted, he has never called for attacks on the Sinhalese community.

However Gnanasara Thero has been accused of making public statements calling for attacks on Muslims, the Minister said.

The BBS says Gnanasara Thero is in hiding as there is an alleged threat to his life.

The Police had said two weeks ago that Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero is to be arrested for obstructing Police duty and over several other complaints.

A court order had been obtained preventing the controversial monk from leaving the country. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Now Rajitha Seneratne is trying to hoodwink the Muslim voters again. At the same time he is defending NPC – CM, Vigneswarn from making detrimental statements against the President and the Sovereignty of our “Maathruboomiya”. Rajitha, Champika and Wijedasa Rajapaksa were the culprits who were nursing the BBS and Gnanasara Thero, even during the Mahinda regime, it has been revealed now.
    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa told this to the electronic media and the print media in the run-up to the 2015 Presidential elections. It is much appreciated that the Sunday Leader journalist Camelia Nathaniel has all the “guts” to bring out the whole story out of this “two faced” deceptive politician. During the time he was with Mahinda government and was making many trips to Norway, I had a feeling that there is something surprising, because Mahinda government was vehemently opposed to some of the actions (international moves) taken by the Norwegian government and also the involvement of the Norwegian diplomats dabbling in our local affairs and politics. But come the presidential elections and the pre-election activities, it is now revealed that Rajitha Seneratne’s visits to Norway was to facilitate the R2R Regime change project by the international community who were opposed to Mahinda (UPFA) ruling Sri Lanka. Rajitha’s son, now an MP of the UNP had clearly explained the CONSPIRACY to the media lately. HE. President Maithripala Sirisena and PM Ranil Wickremasinghe should be vigilant about this father and son political conspirators, because if they will pursue corruption charges on the frauds and corruptions reported above, he may try to topple (CHANGE) the Yahapalana government too. This is the trump this treacherous politician who robbed the Government Hospital (Dental Division) for around Rs. 450,000/= and when was removed from his parliament seat cuddled UNP leader Ranil and got a nominated MP post to parliament .The name sited as Dr N.H.R.H. Senaratne, NIC number 501501760 V, who deposited RS 7,500,000 is none other than Dentist and MP Rajitha Seneratne in the Golden Key Company frauds. Much was highlighted in the media then. This is in a court case concerning the Golden Key Company taken up in January 2013. This information has been extracted from Watawala report. In another case against this UNSCULPROUS politician, representing former Deputy Minister of Justice Dilan Perera, Wijeydasa Rajapashke in 1999 petitioned the Court of Appeal insisting that Dr. Rajitha Senaratne who at the time was an opposition member of parliament had no right to hold office as MP and sit or vote in parliament. The argument was that Senaratne had been engaged in business with a government institution while holding office as MP. As a result, on March 31, 2000 the Court of Appeal held that Dr. Rajitha Senaratne had no right to hold office as a member of parliament. Article 91 (1) (e) of Sri Lanka’s present constitution states that “no person shall be qualified to be elected as a member of parliament or to sit and vote in Parliament” and section (1) (e) of that Article says “if he has any such interest in any such contract made by or on behalf of the state or a public corporation as parliament shall by law prescribe.” The Court of Appeal at the time it made its ruling in the Senaratne case, also held that it was manifestly clear that the first respondent, Rajitha Senaratne had entered into a contract with a government department or a government institution during his tenure of office as MP and that therefore he has disqualified himself to be an MP. The accusation against Dr. Senaratne at the time was that he had solicited and been awarded contracts to supply medical equipment to the Health Ministry during his tenure as a sitting member of parliament. But the worst in support of Mahinda Rajapaksa and against Rajitha Seneratne comes out now as RUMOURS, that Rajitha Seneratne during his tenure of being Minister of Fisheries has been soliciting large amounts of payments from each exporter to allocate special licenses for the export of BECHE-DE-ME or SEA CUCUMBER from Sri Lanka during a time and even now, it was a prohibited marine life. Many BECHE-DE-ME or SEA CUCUMBER modalities in the Mannar district, Northern peninsular and even down south will vouch for this corruption. President Maithripala Sirisena and PM Ranil Wickremasinghe should NOT FAIL to proceed with all FCID complaints Minister Rajitha Seneratne and his son, though is “wings have been trimmed” in the government.
