He tweeted saying there is clear evidence against several others over the misuse of public funds yet action is not being taken against them.

“President and Govt on the right track but sadly the Police and Investigations are on the wrong track. There are multiple members with clear evidence of misusing public funds and corruption that the police and AGs Dep can go after. I do not agree with the Police actions,” Wijesekera tweeted.

His tweet came after the Police action on Ramanayake was questioned by many on social media and the popularity of the politician saw a sharp rise. (Colombo Gazette)
