Mervyn Says Monk Gnanasara Thera Has A Woman Living In France

mervin_silvaMinister of Public Relations and Public Affairs Dr. Mervyn Silva has accused Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera of having an affair with a woman living in France and he has purchased a house for the woman from Rajagiriya.

In an interview published in a Sri Lankan newspaper, Dr. Silva has stated that people like Gnanasara Thera will not be elected to presidency or other respected office by the people of the country. There were a number of respectable and learned monks in the country than people like Gnanasara Thera, he says. Although his name implies the procession of “gnaanaya” or intelligence, there is no such intelligence on in the BBS General Secretary, argues Dr. Silva.

He also said that he would rather name the BBS General Secretary as “Agnaanasaara” (person with no intelligence) and also added that it was his policy to avoid such people at all costs.

Dr. Silva also says that his main problem is the robe the BBS General Secretary is wearing, which he misuses. He also says that Gnanasara Thera once disrobed and he does not know who put the robes on the BBS General Secretary again.

Furthermore, the Minister has also stated that Gnanasara Thera was nowhere to be found during the war years.
