Srilanka Political Crisis

13 July 2022 01:25

Hundreds of sri lankans continued to flock to the sri lankan presidential palace on tuesday as political chaos persists and talks go on in the country. these protesters marvel at the paintings inside and lounging on the beds piled high with pillows .

For many  who had traveled on overcrowded trains and buses from outside the capital colombo this was the first time they had laid eyes on a residence so grand. 

Earlier on saturday thousands of angry sri lankans descended on the residence in fury against president gotabaya rajapaksa who they blame for an unprecedented economic meltdown  that has throttled the lives of the nation's 22 million people.

They turned over barriers and then swarmed the lawns  to enter the palatial residence and occupy it.
