Sri Lanka is facing a serious economic crisis, including food and fuel shortages affecting large numbers of people on the island nation. The economy has been in recession since the Covid-19 epidemic began. “I don’t really know but there are some cricketers who are playing exceptionally well in the IPL and have not spoken about their country. Unfortunately, people are afraid to speak out against the government. These cricketers are also working for the cricket board under the ministry and they are trying to protect their jobs. But now they have to take a step as some young cricketers have also come forward and made statements in support of the protest. Arjuna Ranatunga told ANI.

“When something goes wrong, you should have the courage to come out and speak out against your business. People ask me why I am not in protest. It’s just that I’ve been in politics for the last 19 years and it’s not a political issue. So far no political party or politician has joined the protest and this is the biggest strength of the people of this country. ” He added.

Earlier, Sri Lankan players like Wanindu Hasaranga and Vanuka Rajapaksa came out in support of the ongoing protests against the economic crisis.

“I am sure you all know who the players are, playing in the IPL. I don’t want to mention but I want them to leave their jobs for a week and come out in support of the protest. Said the former cricketer.

The economy has been in a downward spiral since the Covid-19 epidemic began to affect tourism.

Sri Lanka is also facing a foreign exchange deficit, which has affected its ability to import food and energy. Shortages of essential commodities have forced Sri Lanka to seek help from friendly countries.

Due to the economic situation, there have been widespread protests demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Earlier, in a special address to the nation on Monday, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa urged the people to be patient and stop taking to the streets to enable the government to resolve the situation.
