Indian foreign policies are always in concern with people and their rights rather than any political agendas. India has immensely helped its neighbours in the crisis, when Nepal was destroyed by the earthquake, India was the first country to send emergency help to the people of Nepal. Human rights and security are the priority of Indian policies.
Sri Lanka is one of the most important partners and neighbours of India and India has always been the first to help Sri Lanka even during the Easter bombing attack. Now, Sri Lanka is suffering from an economic crisis, India has already sent the help of $ 2.4 billion since January. The situation became worse due to the reckless spending on the fancy ports and unnecessary investment by the Sri Lankan government. The imports have intensified irrespective of the exports from the country. The Ukraine-Russia crisis also played a significant role in the economic crisis of Sri Lanka as both of these countries were prime importers of Sri Lankan spices and as war broke out the exports were severely impacted resulting in such a situation in Sri Lanka.
Now Sri Lanka is trying to ask for the help from International Monetary Fund(IMF) which might take about five to six months to approve assistance. During this period Sri Lanka is anticipating extended help from India. Although India made it pretty much clear that, these funds are sent to the people, without any political agenda
