President Maithripala Sirisena has been using public funds to boost his image via social media, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.
Last night the President’s official Facebook page carried a sponsored post saying “President Maithripala Sirisena addressing the Sri Lankan community in Russia at the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Moscow.”
A group of concerned citizens are already drafting a right to information request to find out, who paid these monies to Facebook to boost his image.
Tax payers are furious and many people questioned this paid promotion. For instance well known columnist Nalaka Gunawardene, has commented under Sirisena’s post saying “This is a paid promotion. How much public funds are you spending boosting yourself on Facebook, Maithripala Sirisena?”
