  1. Where is cha-ina now. Nowhere to be seen to help Sri Lanka in their crisis. They took Hanbantota port and ran away or what.

  2. It's normal for SIN LANKA…. THEY HAD A SCARCE OF HUMANITY NOW SCARCITY OF GOODS….. NOTHING WILL. BE BETTER EVER FOR SIN LANKA

  3. Looks like South Aisa is another Middle East, but without the oil. Sri Lanka doomed, Pakistan doomed, Bangladeshis are going the Pakistani way. If they are intelligent enough they might become stable. Nepal again – is being wrecked by the communists. It needs to be converted back into Hindu kingdom.

    They are all falling in the trap of SHYLOCKS

  4. Srilanka should kick out their rajapakshas and reduce their population, put old vehicles out of road and let public use public transport

  5. Srilankan leadership is corrupted to the core..all prev ministers loot the loan amt n runaway..ther is nothing to bailout..it's a blackhole they keep sucking just like Pakistan except no terrorists here..

  6. Dont Fund Sri lanka untill Rajapaksas step down ..They are theives.. i know we will suffer but thats ok untill this government step down ..

  7. Sri Lankan economic situation is result of its own china oriented policies, Sri Lanka has never favoured India in past nor it has pro India policies… so why to support such nation which is anyway remained away from India in future too. .. let them perish. ..

  8. """ LENTING MORE MONEY TO SRI LANKA NOT A SOLUTION "" HOW TO IMPROVE THE EXPORTING " EXAMPLE BANGLADESH " RACIST POLITICIANS NEVER DEVELOPED THE COUNTRY, BEST WAY IS REDUCING POLITICIANS, MILITARY, POLICEMAN, ALL POLITICAL APPOINTMENTS IN NORTHERN & EASTERN PROVINCES.. INVESTMENT IN FISHERIES, CATTLE FARMING, LIVESTOCK, AGRICULTURE,

  9. It’s a pity and shame pls hand over to the lady prime minister , the old prime minister did a good 👍 but the present leaders so greasy pls resign

  10. Sri Lanka run by corrupt family if Rajapaksha. World fun to the country all need to goto public and not to this thieves and corrupted government

  11. Why should India, even though it has already done. But the question is why! Whenever somthing goes wrong in neighbouring countries. They ask help from India. But when India needs their help, not even help just a support so India can fight against terrorism or China's advances. But they won't do. Even our enemy are being helped by us. I mean does India have so much money or does they treasure Island to provide others!!!!

  12. USA increased it's import of Russia' crude oil by 40% since the invasion of Ukraine began and the same USA removed sanctions on fertilizers imports from Russia. It's only European countries who are still sleep walking into an economic crisis. Soon European people will realize that they have been led off the cliff by their politicians😂😂😂😂

  13. Modi stop wasting india tax payers money giving free loans to srilanka.
    They can't pay and most of it will be looted by rajapakse family.

  14. Sri Lanka lived on borrowed money for long , now paying a price , very simple , no amount of bail out will be suffice for Sri Lanka .

  15. Indian BJP regime have NO money to pay GST money to Tamilnadu who pay the second largest tax money but pouring billions of dollars to save the Sinhala barbaric War Criminals regime.
    Very soon Tamilnadu people think that what is the point of being in UNION of India as India robbing billions Tax from Tamilnadu but paying to War Criminals regime in Srilanka while the Indian BJP regime refuse to pay GST money 20000cr to Tamilnadu
    Racist India abusing the trust of Tamilnadu for long

  16. While Sinhala Nation fight against the same War Criminals for whom the majority Sinhala racist people voted despite they did carry out the Genocide of Tamils and continue to do Ethnic Cleansing,. occupation of Eelam Tamil Nation with 85% of the Srilankan military, Sinhalaisation of Eelam Tamil Nation lands, building unnecessary Ndshisy temples in Tamil Nation Eelam where 99% Tamil lives, torture Tamils even now, etc
    In Tamil Nation, very very few protests cos the Sinhala racist military usually use heavy weapons against Tamils whenever they try to protest but the same military very reluctant to use such killing weapons against Sinhalese.
    And also Tamils did not vote for the War Criminals regime but Sinhala racist majority people voted for the War Criminals despite they directly involved in the Genocide, of Tamils in 2009, in which 146700 were butally killed by the Srilankan military with the help of 20 countries and also by Using banned chemical weapons against the brave Tamil fighters.

  17. The problem in Sri Lanka because they are using business terrorism to exploit and destroyed the Sri Lanka economy infrastructure

  18. The Sri Lanka government she go to Russia and negotiate for gas or long term supply because the gas prices in Russia is good for Sri Lanka economy

  19. Sri Lanka should diversified her economy from India to global but World bank is control and colonial trap to take over country resources and companies

  20. When they are forced to ration idiots, they will finally achieve the dream of becoming the next Singapore!

    Just two years ago, the vast majority of the Sinhalese voted for the Rajapaksa brothers, who are war criminals and fraudsters.

    Why are the Sinhalese complaining?

    They should wait for the Rajapaksa brothers to deliver prosperity and splendor, as they promised in the last election manifesto!

    They may deliver prosperity and splendor in 2122!

  21. Srilanka commited the worst genocide of tamils and Hindus now shamelessly begging india for money .
    Such a low life

  22. What srilanka will do if money given to them….
    They will depend it well enough… Then again loan … Another loan to clear past loan … It's kind of cycle 😜… They only barrow money and enjoy.. ..

    They don't take constructive work to feed their country… … Bestide srilanka can sell its country and be atleast as worker…

  23. You know what's more impressive? If they pull themselves out of this. That's a solution which is sustainable. It will also enable them to take independent stance on other matters. It will also get them more respect.

  24. Srilanka wants an immediate release of 3bn of fund so that Rajapaksha’s family can steal more money for their personal interest.

  25. Do not help us. We will change this corrupt political system even if it means starving. Otherwise future generations will have to suffer.

  26. Srilanka let Rajpaksha family loot the nation as long as they got their free hand outs. Now it's time to pay the price
