Everyone is aware of the situations in Sri Lanka. The country is going through a deep financial crisis and the people there have revolted against the Mahinda Rajapaksa’s government, blaming him for the poor management which led to the crisis.

The latest development is that Ranil Wickremesinghe, the leader of Sri Lanka’s United National Party (UNP), was sworn-in as Prime Minister of the country on May 12.

Wickremesinghe was the senior Opposition MP and took oath as the prime minister to lead a proposed cross-party government for the sixth time.

He replaces the president Gotabaya’s brother, Mahinda Rajapaksa, who resigned on Monday amid street protests in the main city Colombo.

However, even after Wickremesinghe took charge as the Prime Minister, the protests in the country hasn’t stopped as they demand immediate resignation from the president.

As per reports, the people in Sri Lanka struggle for essential commodities like fuel and milk and the lack of foreign currency has exacerbated the country’s economic crisis.
