LNP – More buses added to cover up train strike: Dilum

Due to sudden trade union action by two Railway Trade Unions this morning, the Transport Ministry added more buses to facilitate office transport, Transport State Minister Dilum Amunugama said.

He said the train drivers’ and controllers’ associations suddenly engaged in a countrywide strike from this morning, claiming that they were not given COVID vaccinations.

As a result of that, the Ministry added more buses soon after the news reached that the railway services came to an abrupt halt and to ensure the commuters are not inconvenienced, the State Minister said.

State Minister Amunugama said the sudden train strike was unfortunate and it is not the right time to go for their demands where the general public is facing severe hardships.

Therefore, I advised the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) to operate more buses to provide transport facilities to the people from this morning,” he added.

    Most of these people are selfish. They only think of their well being. The opposition is behind all these activities. They want the country to go down. So they can come back to power . This is the game going forward.
