Sri Lanka, neighboring India, is going through a period of instability these days. Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa was forced to resign from his post and even after that the period of violence did not stop. Somewhere the houses of the ministers are being burned and there are clashes with the deputies. The family of former Prime Minister Rajapaksa himself had to take refuge in the naval base to save his life. Meanwhile, some celebrities in India, referring to these situations, advised their country to learn. These figures include historian Ramachandra Guha, senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan and banker Uday Kotak.
Uday Kotak tweeted that Sri Lanka’s burning indicates what not to do. Uday Kotak, CEO of Kotak Mahindra Bank tweeted, “The Russo-Ukrainian war continues and is getting tougher. The real test for countries is now. The strength of institutions such as the judiciary, regulatory authorities, police, government and parliament will be important. What is important is doing the right thing, not the populist. The phrase “Jalta Lanka” tells us “All that should not be done.” No one was mentioned in Uday Kotak’s comments, but some view his opinion as advice to the Modi government. Although at one time he was a supporter of the Modi government.
Guha said – The situation in Sri Lanka is a warning to India
Meanwhile, while speaking to the media on one occasion, historian Ramachandra Guha described the situation in Sri Lanka as a warning to India. He said: “Sri Lanka would have been the most prosperous country in Asia. They have high literacy rates, health services and sex ratio. But this country was devastated by the Sinhalese and Buddhist majority. He also said that if importance is given to one religion and one language, the state of India will also be like Sri Lanka. Lawyer Prashant Bhushan also expressed a similar opinion. He compared the situation in India and Sri Lanka by posting some newspaper excerpts on Twitter.

He wrote with this, “Do you see some similarity between what the rulers of Sri Lanka did in the past few years and what the rulers of India are doing today? Will its consequences in India be similar to the situation in Sri Lanka today? Significantly, the situation in Sri Lanka is getting worse and the economy is becoming so weak that Foreign exchange reserves have fallen to only 50 billion dollars At the same time, Sri Lanka’s debts from other countries have also risen to 51 billion dollars.
