Bodu Bala Sena Organization today (October 22nd) handed over a petition to the Indian High Commissioner in Colombo, saying that no state has the right to intervene in the internal affairs of another independent state. The petition claims Indian intervention in the national crisis in Sri Lanka amounts to a backing of a separate Eelam state and terrorism.
The organization handed over the petition after proceeding to the HC in a motorcade, after police refused it to march to the high commission.
Speaking to the media, head of Bodu Bala Sena, Ven. Galagodatthe Gnanasara Thera said actions of Tamil Nadu had come barely two months after South Asian leaders pledged to eradicate terrorism.
Noting that Tamil Nadu is backing separatism, he further said that this could also affect over 2,000 years of relations between India and Sri Lanka.
