As the country faces its worst economic crisis in decades, protesters in the capital are calling for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to quit. Demonstrators accused the government of mismanaging the economy and causing a foreign exchange crisis, which has resulted in fuel, cooking gas, milk powder, and pharmaceutical shortages. Sri Lanka’s foreign reserves are at an all-time low, making it difficult to pay for imports. On Tuesday, tens of thousands of people gathered in front of the president’s office in Colombo, headed by supporters of the opposition United People’s Force.
