Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thero has concluded his protest fast upon learning that Governors Azath Salley and M.L.A.M. Hizbullah had resigned from their respective posts.

Athuraliye Rathana Thero launched a protest fast in front of Sri Dalada Maligawa in Kandy on 31st May demanding the removal of Minister Rishad Bathiudeen, Eastern Province Governor M.L.A.M Hizbullah and Western Province Governor Azath Salley from their respective posts.

Rathana Thero claimed that he was prepared to sacrifice his life if need be in order to achieve his demands.

Meanwhile, Governors Azath Salley and M.L.A.M. Hizbullah handed their letter of resignation to President Maithripala Sirisena earlier today (03).

Accordingly, Central Province Governor Maithri Gunaratne informed Rathana Thero of the resignations.

Accordingly, the Thero broke fast and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Rathana Thero stated that the President cannot remove Minister Rishad Bathiudeen from his post and that he believes that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe would take an action regarding this.

    After scoring some points from Ven. Rathana’s struggle to bring justice to more than 300 citizens and foreigners who lost their lives, Ven Galaboda Aththe is now toeing an entirely different line. We saw even at the beginning he was telling that those minority bigwigs are not the real culprits. When he saw that Ven. Rathana has got the backing of the whole country he too got involved. Now he has started to run down him again.

    From which side is he talking now?. It no secret any more as to who built an Arabian town in the east complete with date palm trees, a Sharia university with foreign lecturers and a lot of madrasas. It is also no secret on whose influence those responsible for vandalizing statues and stockpiling explosives etc were released from custody. And now he wants to find a needle in a haystack. Clearly he is dancing to someone’s tune.
