Minister of State Vidura Wickremanayake has said that the failure to arrest Rishad Badurdeen as well as the inability to arrest MPs such as Ravi Karunanayake and Rajitha Senaratne in the past is a joke to the country and if it continues in the same manner, this government will suffer the same fate as the previous government.
"Another police team has been deployed to search for those six police teams. They were looking for Ravi Karunanayake and Rajitha Senaratne those days.
To whom are these jokes provided? To the people of our country? But if these things continue to happen, what happened to the UNP could happen to us in the next election.
Wickremanayake was responding to a question raised by the media yesterday (16) regarding the failure of six police teams to arrest Rishad Badurdeen for three days.
