Sri Lanka, the tear-drop shaped island, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. The country’s current ruling regime is on the verge of being toppled, with the country’s economy facing an unprecedented meltdown. Its popular Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa had to resign on May 9, and while the experienced Ranil Wickremesinghe has taken over, the political and economic situations remain dire.
In this episode of Nothing But The Truth, India Today Group Editorial Director (Publishing) Raj Chengappa focuses on the genesis of the turmoil that has pushed Sri Lanka to the brink of economic collapse. He looks at what lies ahead, why Sri Lanka is important to India and what are warnings the current turmoil holds for leaders of South Asian countries, including India.
