Wimal wants BBS-Norway link exposed

Leader of the National Freedom Front (NFF) and Minister of Housing and Construction, Wimal Weerawansa, said Buddhist monks of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) should challenge the Norway agent in their organization and the officials of the Norwegian Embassy in Colombo.

He was referring to a recent challenge by BBS to either prove allegations that they were recipients of funding from either Norway or any international non-governmental organization (INGO) or to walk on the road wearing a loin
cloth!

"Now that Minister Weerawansa has alleged that we went to Norway to seek funding from an INGO there, it is up to him to prove it. If he does that, we will publicly apologize to the country and immediately disband our organization," BBS General Secretary, Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera told a news conference on Monday (13).

Responding to this, however, Weerawansa said he has no habit of challenging Buddhist monks, but would appreciate if they could ask the same question from
Dr. Dilantha Withanage, who operates as a Norwegian agent.
