Who is Next Prime Minister of Sri Lanka? Gotabaya Rajapaksa to appoint new PM this week

Gotabaya Rajapaksa has also ordered stern action against those involved in the violence.

Colombo: For more than a month, there has been a nationwide public outcry that Gotabaya Rajapakse should step down as president and Mahinda Rajapakse as prime minister, taking responsibility for the economic crisis in Sri Lanka.

Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned as Prime Minister following the intensification of the struggle. Outraged, his supporters rallied and attacked the protesters on foot.

Terrorist riots erupted as both sides clashed as supporters and protesters. The riots spread throughout southern Sri Lanka. The public launched a massive offensive against Mahinda Rajapaksa supporters in various parts of the country.

The ancestral home of the Rajapaksa brothers was completely burnt down. The statue of Rajapaksa’s father was also smashed. The houses of 40 leaders were set on fire during the riots. More than a hundred vehicles were also burned.
