(Mirror) -The Bodhu Bala Sena Organization has vehemently condemned a statement made by the United National Parliamentarian Mangala Samaraweera at a media conference held this morning saying that the Defense Ministry and the government are providing funds for the organization.
They have challenged the MP to prove this allegation.
This is stated in a statement issued by the Bodhu Bala Sena Organization in response to Mr. Mangala Samaraweera’s announcement.
The statement says:
If someone says that the government is providing funds to the Bodhu Bala Sena Organization, we request his or hers close relatives or to close friends to take that individual immediately to a psychiatric hospital.
We have a social capital not possessed by anyone in the country. It is our belief that it is reasonable for the politicians who do not have such social capital behaving as psychiatric patients in this way. If the government is providing funds to us one of our committee members who was an advisor to the government need not have resigned from his government post recently due various pressures exerted to him.
When some people accuse us saying that the United States and other western embassies are providing funds to us and conspiring to topple the government, the Bodhu Bala Sena Organization consider this type of hilarious statements as confrontations existing within the party politics of this country.
