Sri Lanka is going through the worst phase at the moment.

Sri Lanka is going through the worst phase at the moment. A state of civil war has arisen in the country facing economic crisis. The people have revolted against the government. The protesters have occupied the Rashtrapati Bhavan and set the Prime Minister's residence on fire. Here, former Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya is angry with the current situation in Sri Lanka. In a statement, he said that the politicians have made the country impeccable.

Jayasuriya hopes democracy will be restored in Sri Lanka very soon

Former cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya is angry and saddened to see Sri Lanka grapple with financial crisis and unrest, but he hopes that democracy will be restored in the country soon. Jayasuriya, a former captain and one of the best cricketers in the subcontinent, took a jibe at politicians. Jayasuriya said, this is a very sad situation. My country is in a time of crisis and it gives me great pain to see people standing in long queues for essential food items. There is no electricity, no fuel and no essential medicines. What could be worse than that?

Jayasuriya justified the protestors' occupation of Rashtrapati Bhavan

The country is facing the brunt of the poor economic policies of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. He has fled to Maldives and his official residence has been occupied by the general public. Jayasuriya said, all this is unfortunate. Gotabaya is expected to submit his resignation on July 13. There are no words to describe the way our politicians have ruined the country's fleet. He said, "If you ask me about the people present inside the Rashtrapati Bhavan at this time, then I do not see any harm against them. They protested peacefully. He was repeatedly asked not to damage public property.

Jayasuriya said about Ranil Wickremesinghe

People gathered here on July 9 from different parts of Sri Lanka, who are demanding the resignation of the President. Jayasuriya expressed hope that democracy will return to the country soon and the situation will be normal. Asked whether he was in favor of making Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as the acting President, the former Sri Lankan captain said, "Raniel has no choice." He will have to obey the order of Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abhaywardana. For the restoration of peace and democracy in the country, Ranil will have to talk to leaders of various parties including Leader of Opposition Sajith Premadasa.

No threat to Asia Cup: Jayasuriya

Jayasuriya said, he will have to bring Muslim leaders and Tamil leaders of the country on the platform of dialogue. We want the restoration of democracy. He expressed hope that the Asia Cup, starting in August, will be held in Sri Lanka itself. He said, I have full hope that this tournament will happen. There is no danger to it. Everyone in Sri Lanka loves cricket and cricketers. Sri Lankan public is not against any cricketer. Measures will be taken to conduct the tournament in a peaceful manner.
