Tue, Apr 22, 2014, 10:09 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka's extremist Buddhist movement Bodu Baa Sena (BBS) said today that it had no plans to topple the government led by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Addressing a press conference held in Colombo, the leader of the BBS secretary Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero said that when compared to those who are vying to be the common candidate at an upcoming presidential election to lead the country, this government still could be directed in the right path with the current leader.

The vociferous monk further said that the BBS could topple governments or create governments in Sri Lanka if it wanted.

BBS is under fire from certain government ministers and very recently leftist Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara urged the government to ban the BBS.
