He never begged bail from Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe or President Maithripala Sirisena if anyone says the Prime Minister or the President had instructed legal sections to give him bail such person does it to get marks for himself says former Minister of Mahinda Rajapaksa regime Wimal Weerawansa. He said this after he was released on strict bail conditions yesterday (7th).
However, retired President Mahinda Rajapaka, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Dinesh Gunawardene, the MPs of Mahinda faction continuously said they discussed with President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe regarding bailing out Wimal Weerawansa.
Once retired President Mahinda Rajapaksa said as Wimal Weerawansa was a MP but not a coconut plucker or a Mason Baas, they would meet the Prime Minister and the President to get him released on bail. However, Wimal Weerawansa says they say such things to get marks for themselves.
Political analysts say Wimal Weerawansa had expected MPs of the Mahinda faction to create a big impact on the society regarding his arrest and get down a sea of people to protest his imprisonment. As nothing of that sort happened and not even hundred people gathered opposite the prison to protest his arrest Weerawansa is cut up with the MPs of the Mahinda faction and it was the reason for such outbursts they point out.
