Minister of Water Supply and Drainage, Dinesh Gunawardena, has informed President Mahinda Rajapaksa the Bodu Bala Sena organization is planning on holding a rally in Maharagama tomorrow (Sunday 17 February), to mark their protest over the present circumstances of Buddhism in Sri Lanka.

When contacted by Ceylon Today, the minister said it was his duty to inform such important events to the President as the Chairman of the Maharagama Development Council appointed by the government.

He also said the permission to hold the rally has been granted by the Maharagama Police. Minister Gunawardena said he does not oppose rallies organized by political parties or organizations in Maharagama since it is the right of the people.

Meanwhile, a spokesman of Bodu Bala Sena organization said over 40 rallies were organized in the main cities throughout the island, such as Kandy, Balangoda, Galle, Akurana, Wariyapola, Udunuwara and Yatinuwara in the past few months.
