The opposition candidate at the presidential elections in January, Maithripala Sirisena, invited the Buddhist organisation Bodu Bala Sena for talks, according to the group’s general secretary Gnanasara.
The monk said the BBS received several invitations for discussions on the election from the parties in the common opposition.
“We have not taken any final decision to meet him,” the Daily Mirror quoted Gnanasera.
