Bodu Bala Sena gets its way on one point

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has succeeded in getting a ban imposed on irreversible methods of family planning.

The BBS came out with a 10 point manifesto at its rally in Maharagama a couple of weeks ago, banning of certain birth control methods was one of them. (See the bottom of this article for the manifesto).

Point 4 of the manifesto wants to ban purchase of land 'using funds from the Middle East'. The Government banned the sale of land to foreigners last week, could this be a further concession to the BBS?

They seem to have won concessions fairly fast, could a ban on maids to the Middle East be next?
