Colombo: President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa have been engaged in a series of protests demanding the resignation of President Rajapaksa due to the economic crisis in Sri Lanka. But both refused to resign.

A state of emergency has been declared across the country since midnight yesterday to quell the month-long protests.
