President Gotabaya Rajapaksa imposed an emergency in Sri Lanka to suppress the protesters!

The situation in Sri Lanka is becoming increasingly complex amid the severe economic crisis. For the second time in a month, a state of emergency was declared across the country.

 President Gotabaya Rajapaksa declared a state of emergency in the country from midnight yesterday (May 8). Strict security measures have been put in place across the country during the state of emergency to quell anti-government protests.

Recently, Sri Lanka has been plunged into an extreme economic crisis. The prices of many essentials including oil and cooking gas are skyrocketing in the country. This is the reason why the people of the country have started a movement against the government.

 Despite the recent resignation of the entire cabinet in the country, Rajapaksa has retained his own position as president. Thousands of ordinary people are protesting against his resignation. Even before this, innumerable people of the country got together and started protesting in front of the Rajapaksa's house.

After that, a state of emergency was declared in the whole country from the 1st of April. The government lifted the state of emergency after two weeks. However, the anger of the people could not be stopped. 

After a while, a number of students went to the parliament and started agitating. Eventually the police had to use tear gas. Therefore, a state of emergency was declared across the country once again from midnight yesterday.
