Sri Lanka is now at the edge of a Socio-Economic and Political collapse. The country has descended into its worst financial crisis since independence, with food, fuel, medicine and electricity becoming increasingly scarce. During and after the Covid-19 pandemic situation, mismanagement of the government led the country to chaos. Now, thousands take to the streets to call for the resignation of president Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the entire government. Also, they demand an audit of the wealth of the Rajapaksa family and their henchmen. The people reject and neglect the government as well as the parliament and demand all power to the people.
