Sri Lankan Governor Warns Of Country's Collapse

May 11, Kathmandu- Sri Lanka's governor has warned that the country's economy will collapse if a new government is not formed within two days.

Amid protests over the resignation of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and the resignation of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Governor Nandalal Weerasinghe warned that Sri Lanka's economy would collapse if a new government was not formed within two days, AFP reported.

Meanwhile, a curfew has been imposed in Sri Lanka today as well. According to the BBC, the curfew was lifted after violent protests and arson continued. Protesters turned violent and set themselves on fire after government-backed groups attacked peaceful protesters. Security personnel have been ordered to open fire on those violating the curfew.

The lack of foreign exchange has made life difficult for people in Sri Lanka due to the shortage of fuel, food items, medicines, and rising prices.
