  1. for India it will be difficult to check on both sides one Sri Lanka and other is Pak. Even they provide aid in high inflation and other war aspects it will very difficult to manage.

  2. As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. And you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:3‭-14 MEV

    (Obs: From the beginning of the tribulation to the end, which takes 7 years, and near the end, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, which would be impossible without technology of global communication.)

    “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you know that its desolation has drawn near. Luke 21:20 MEV

    “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place,(…) Matthew 24:15 MEV

    “His armies shall rise up and desecrate the sanctuary fortress. They shall abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that makes desolate. Daniel 11:31 MEV

    “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Daniel 12:11 MEV

    (Obs: These events will take place after the construction of the third temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)

    (…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath. For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. “Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:16‭-22 MEV

    There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 MEV

    (Obs: In the age of technology, men know what is happening on the inhabited earth, no longer are they limited by local information.)

    “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.’ “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Matthew 24:29‭-31 MEV

    (Obs: This is the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, the signs of the sixth seal match the signs of Matthew 24:29-30, the sixth seal is when the rapture happens; before the great tribulation, before the seven trumpets.)

    When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 MEV

    Because you have kept My word of patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture before the time of temptation, which will be the government of the antichrist during the great tribulation.)

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:38‭-‬39 MEV

    (Obs: People will not be eating and drinking and marrying during the great tribulation, therefore, rapture will happen before the great tribulation, when people are still distracted.)

    When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 MEV

    (Obs: Sudden destruction near the rapture.)

    Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:40‭-41 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were since the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3‭-4 MEV

    (Obs: Apostasy of the last days, when more and more men are denying God and going after their own sinful desires.)

    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat. The earth also and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: The destructions that will happen after the rapture, just as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; the righteous are rescued and the judgements are poured upon the wicked. "like a thief in the night" means it will happen when you do not expect. "heavens will pass away" means the sky will vanish as a scroll that is being rolled up, which is mentioned in Revelation 6:14.)

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV

    (Obs: People around the world have been hearing trumpets from the sky in different times, it has been happening for a few years. When the last trumpet sound, the redeemed will be rescued and the great tribulation will begin.)

    He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16‭-17 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, no one will be able to buy or sell without a mark from the government/beast of the antichrist, which will take place during the great tribulation, which is at the door.)

    But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Daniel 12:4 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, many will travel to many places and knowledge will be increased.)

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 MEV

    Behold, the King of kings is coming soon, repent now of all your sins — turn away from all sins — and abide in the only Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua, the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

  3. This is nothing but to deceive the public at large and cover Rajapakse asses. We will continue our fight until the cursed family is driven out of Sri Lankan politics 🇱🇰.

  4. Island going cheap, knock down price, any takers?, cheap labour force, will work for a bowl of rice or less.

  5. 6:26… they cut him off when he suggested the President remains in power… WION is obviously canvassing for regime change in Sri Lanka….


  7. The politicians are thinking that they can fool people of Srilanka as if they aren't aware that this mass resignation is futile. What people need is steady supply of the basic necessities n not resignation drama.

  8. The time has come for the corrupt rajapaksa family to step down cos they made enough is enough for many of decendants to survive for a long long time. They r just useless lackey of china n a disgrace to the whole world.phissh. Instead of building a better nation for their people ,they simply suck dry their country and simply indulged in corruption at the expence n explioted their own people. Since after 74 years proven they cannot do their job well let other capable people take over. Immeduately step down before its too late n be it. ……frm stt

  9. Form a educated comitee. And recruit employers for each ministry. Give job to well educated and talented. Make elction period for 3 year. And minister job need to be reviewed every year like other professions. They should hv kpi. And basic salalry. Make all transaction in digital. Trace all deposit n implement minimum wage . Atleast ll start.

  10. A number of new ministers have been appointed as of posting this comment, And as everyone speculated, it is just a reshuffling of existing cabinet members. What a joke. The Rajapakshas are searching for quick solutions, but the public won't accept this BS. Not this time. The fight has been taken to the streets and it won't stop untill there is real change.

  11. All these years we Indians are introuble cause these lankans present previous post previous before yet not learned a lesson need a regime change get rid of these generic thugs

  12. For as long as Winston can recall, Oceania has been in a constant state of war – with whom it was at war is of neither importance nor consequence. – 1984

  13. We are not gonna settle for anything less than the whole government resigning including the president and all their property being taken into custody.

  14. It would be a disaster for the whole of the SRI LANKAN nation immediately and the long term prospects of the future and of its people unless the president and the prime minister are appointed in a caretaker role in govt and work in co operation with all the major and minor parties and leading figures in economics and finance to agree on a consensus on how to get this country out of the disastarious problems it is facing It is plainly obvious that the long standing problems that exist can not be found a solution by the present party The country needs to be united by a leader that has the experience and support of the people and businesses in SL and other willing nations that are sympathetic to SRI LANKAS future and growth not exploit it.SRI LANKA can be a great nation again with the cooperation of its true friends and a visionary leader and statesman to show how it is done .GOD BLESS ALL SRI LANKANS

  15. They’ve not resigned ! The letters were handed over to the P.M. saying that they are willing to resign, and the letter is not a legal document as the letter should be handed over to the President and he should accept!!

  16. There are people who can run the country. Viyath Maga was brought in by Gotabhaya Rajapakse but why they are not given power and position to implement their plans, or even hear them.

  17. All rajapakshas ministers shouldbe resigned without any delay and whoever going to get the govt then could run the govt without any Haphazerd.

  18. The arrogance and CLUELESSNESS of the government is absolutely DISGUSTING ‼️ It’s absolutely heartbreaking what this FAMILY (Rajapaksa’s) have done to Sri Lanka and it’s people. Every common person in Sri Lanka needs to get out and protest to get this FAMILY business to LEAVE the government! Power to the people of SL! The world is with you ‼️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  19. Sri Lankan oppositions leaders are greedy for power. They are running a huge campaign against the scapegoat and not the plandemic lock downs that destroyed the economy. Greedy opposition with the social media campaign funding of the global elites are provoking the people. That countries economy is suffering because they lost their major revenue tourism due to the evil lockdowns controlled by globalists. Protesting leaders are the greediest of all. They are going to sell that country to international corporations. This is an evil global agenda. People in that country has no damn clue of what's going on.

  20. Srilanka should merge with India with limited Autonomy ie,defence, finance, home and foreign ministry with the centre and rest of ministries with the local government . This will have two beneficial fallouts 1) Common srilankan nationals will made financially safe and stable
    2) Srilankans will be sheltered from predatory activities of China , making their life safe and secure.

  21. I know they will blame AMERICA soon… HOW a FAMILY can rule millions of people and even sold a PORT to china shows the people are SERIOUSLY WEAK


  23. Amend the Constitution to limit any political position to 10 years, cut off all the privileges of parliamentarians, reduce the pension to gratuity. Then you see who will come and serve the country.

  24. Years and years, decades and decades these evildoers cabinet ministers earned enough from commissioning, bribed and done all sorts of corruption. It is good they have resigned. I wish they should not come back to politics anymore. It is great. They all same most corrpted evildoers in our parliament. Great….great things to happen…..

  25. What is the use of changing Rajapaksa.
    They took loan with good intentions to develop Srilanka like Singapore after civil war in 2009.
    But, Singapore economic model is outdated & backfired. The money spent on the projects did not give returns. Loan interest increased.
    Now, Srilanka has to cut unnecessary import. Srilanka should Dissolve Army and take national security support from China or USA . Because, Srilankan do not like Indian Army.
    Bangladesh is growing because there is no defense spending.

  26. Aruna your idea of letting Gota to continue is absurd… He is totally clueless and dishonest to run a country.. Simply an egocentric idiot… Interim government without any Rajapakse on board will be a temporary solution until a fresh election is organized…If we are able to confiscate all illegally acquired properties by Rajapakse and their cronies and recover huge sums of money stolen so far , that will be a good move towards recovery….
