Imprisoning Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Venerable Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera for six years and the recent alleged plot to assassinate the President and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa were plans directed by the CIA and RAW, National organizer of the National Rights Movement Ven. Bengamuwe Nalaka Thera said.  Speaking to the media the Thera said the government leaders were dancing according to the tune of the CIA and RAW. “Whatever happens in this country is directed by the CIA and RAW on a weekly basis. After that they will continue with their spy activities here,” the Thera said.  

“The stories circulating regarding Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) DIG Nalaka Silva are not credible and we believe the stories may have been cooked up,” he said.  “These powerful spy services are operating through embassies around the world and they need to bring the country down after creating problems. Our Government leaders are allowing them to achieve that goal,”  Ven. Nalaka Thera charged.  

“If the government is silent about these issues and people who speak on behalf of justice are imprisoned, people have the right to gather to topple it.  “If a man dies he will be re-born but there is no re-birth of a nation if it dies. Ven. Gnanasara Thera was sentenced when he attempted to resurrect a dying nation,” Ven. Nalaka Thera said.  “We would be having several rounds of discussions after meeting the Maha Nayakes of the Malwatte,  Asgiriya chapters and other Nikayas today about the best course of action we should employ to ensure the release of Ven. Gnanasara Thera,” he said.
