Sri Lanka is going through an unprecedented economic crisis

During the ongoing protests against the government in Sri Lanka, protesters sang slogans against former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his family. But they also raised slogans against India.

Slogans such as – “Do not sell the land to India and the United States”; “India: Sri Lanka is not another Indian state”; And “India: Do not take advantage of Sri Lanka’s situation” – was widely circulated during the protests.

But while such anti-India sentiment persists, the way Sri Lankans view India may change as the country grapples with a crippling crisis of political and economic chaos.
