Sri Lanka: Protesters burn down Sri Lanka PM’s private house

Sri Lanka: Protesters burn down Sri Lanka PM’s private house

Colombo, July 9 (UNI) Protesters in Sri Lanka on Saturday set fire to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s private home after his security attacked them, BBC reported.
The protesters, who had come to the nation's capital on Saturday to participate in the huge protest rally to demand the resignation of President Gotobaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe, earlier in the day stormed the President’s official residence, braving police, and later occupied the Prime Minister’s official resident, the Temple Trees.
After this the protesters marched to Wickremesinghe’s private residence in Colombo 7 and surrounded it, demanding that he too step down.
This led to the police’s elite Special Task Force (STF) attacking the protesters, angering them which led to them setting fire to the house of Wickremesinghe who had left it with his wife.
At the party leaders meeting earlier in the day which was summoned by the Speaker to solve the current crisis, Wickremesinghe had refused to resign. But later he announced that he would resign once an all-party government is formed and a political group proved its majority in the parliament.
