Bhikkhus to form a new party if not given nomination Featured

A group of monks involved in politics is reportedly in discussion to a new front called the ‘Sangha Peramuna’  to contest the upcoming general election.

This is due to another group of monks requesting political parties not to give nominations to monks.

This meeting had reportedly taken place at a temple in Rajagiriya over the weekend and a monk currently in parliament, those who had served earlier and monks involved in various organizations had attended this meeting.

However, when contacted, Ven. Baddegama Samitha Thera said that although a meeting had been held, the discussion was not primarily on this matter.
