A retired major general of the Army has instructed a group running a secret social media network to immediately start a media campaign to provoke members of the military and their families against the government.

Military intelligence has submitted a detailed report in this connection, a senior spokesman for the president’s office told Sri Lanka Mirror.

The ex-officer in question is popular in the media and is a close supporter of former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and ex-minister Wimal Weerawansa.

He has formed an intelligence faction together with some retired Army officers and is having an office near the parliamentary complex.
