Sri Lanka gets a new Prime Minister in Ranil WickremasingheOur southern neighbour Sri Lanka has unfortunately been suffering from extreme economic recession and is presently in doldrums. This is due to corruption and wrong decisions of Rajapakse brothers and straightaway falling into the debt trap set by the Chinese.
Now, Mahinda Rajapakse has resigned from the post of Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, although his brother Gotabaya is still continuing as President. Ranil Wickremasinghe has taken oath as the new Prime Minister of the country. Ranil Wickremasinghe is one of the most respected politicians of today's Sri Lanka. He is not in the China camp unlike Rajapakse brothers. He has maintained more or less cordial working relationship with India.
The China-leaning Rajapakse brothers and earlier Ranasinghe Premadasa, etc. slowly but steadily took Sri Lanka towards the debt trap set by China and then finally threw entire country in the trap.
It will take considerable time for Sri Lanka to come out of Chinese trap and the consequent economic mess. It is expected that Wickremasinghe won't take any suicidal economic decision like his predecessor. .It is also expected that as a country, it would come out of China's harmful sphere of influence and the western world and India would help Sri Lanka to regain its past economy.
We must wish best of luck to the new Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Ranil Wickremasinghe. Under his leadership, The Sri Lankan's will vanquish harmful influence of China and become a strong country with full co-operation from India.
