Emergency lifted in Sri Lanka, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa Announced
A Big news is coming out of Sri Lanka. President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has decided to lift the emergency from the country.
Instructions have been issued to remove the emergency from their side.
The state of emergency in Sri Lanka has been lifted.
President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has announced this.
He had earlier decided to impose an emergency given the deteriorating situation. But now he has canceled that decision.
Emergency removed from Sri Lanka Now for information, let us tell you that the emergency was declared in Sri Lanka on April 4.
When violence had started everywhere due to the economic crisis, the President had decided to impose an emergency to control the situation.
But now the decision of the same emergency has been canceled. What are the reasons behind this, it is not clear yet. Even now, the situation on the ground is said to be very bad.
Inflation has reached its peak and the dam of the patience of the people is breaking. There are long queues to get diesel, hours of waiting for kerosene, and students’ exams have been canceled due to paper shortage.
The deteriorating situation can be gauged from the fact that the entire cabinet of the Prime Minister has resigned.
Even the PM’s son has decided to leave his post. It is being said that now an all-party government can be formed in Sri Lanka, where the leaders of the opposition will also have active participation.
What is the situation on the ground? Now, this political upheaval has intensified because the situation in Sri Lanka seems to be going out of control. Prolonged power cuts in Sri Lanka have affected communication networks in the country.
Due to heavy debt and dwindling foreign reserves, Sri Lanka is now unable to even pay for imports.
This is why there has been a shortage of many goods, including fuel in the country. On top of all this, the Kovid-19 pandemic dealt a massive blow to the economy of Sri Lanka.
The government estimated a loss of $ 14 billion in the last two years.
On top of all that, because now Sri Lanka has come to the verge of running out of foreign exchange, the initiative to seek help from other countries has also weakened.
