Sri Lanka orders open fire on rioters

Sri Lanka orders open fire on rioters: After the economic crisis in Sri Lanka, the situation is getting worse. Now orders have been given to shoot the protesters directly. The Defense Ministry has said in the order issued for the three armies of the country that if anyone loots public property or conducts violent demonstrations, then he should be shot.

This order from the army came after President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s statement in which he appealed to the people not to indulge in violence. After the resignation of Mahinda Rajapaksa, 8 people have lost their lives till Monday in violent clashes between anti-government protests.

Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned from the post of Prime Minister on the previous day, after which his house was burnt.

Violence between supporters of the government and protesters forced the deployment of the army and a nationwide curfew in the capital Colombo. Protesters have set up outposts on the road leading to Katunayake airport so that the ruling leaders and their loyalists cannot flee the country.

Now the demand for the removal of the President
Meanwhile, Mahinda Rajapaksa, along with his wife and family, left his official residence – Temple Trees – after the violence and took refuge at a naval base in the port city of Trincomalee on Sri Lanka’s northeast coast.

Protesters in Sri Lanka have been demanding the removal of the government for the last three months. The protesters allege that the Rajapaksa government is corrupt and that the Rajapaksa Brothers’ wrong policies are responsible for inflation, unemployment and starvation in Sri Lanka. There is a curfew in Sri Lanka at this time but the protesters are sticking to their demand. After the resignation of the Prime Minister, their demand is that after Rajapaksa, his brother Gotabaya Rajapaksa should also resign from the post of President.
