JHU Wants Rathana Thero To Resign

The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) has called for the resignation of the Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thero. The Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thero had recently decided to sit as an independent member in Parliament.

Athuraliye Rathana Thero was a member of the JHU and supported President Maithripala Sirisena at the last Presidential election. The JHU has told the monk that while it has no issue with him sitting as an independent MP in Parliament, he must resign from the party.

    It is common sense that when a party member decide to be an INDEPENDENT from that day own wards he has no party. Hence the JHU can cancel his membership without any further discussions or asking this particular member to resign, because in the party constitution there must be clause to this effect. If not the JHU cannot be a real one but a loose party composed of RUNAWAYS.

    he is only a monk,not the head of the Buddhist hierachy,if there is one at all
