The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association said that private buses on the 138 route which resolved to go on strike tomorrow had called off the strike.

“The Western Province Passenger Transport Authority has assured that they will take steps to solve this problem but this isn’t adequate. However we cannot continue with the strikes because it will create a lot of inconvenience for the public,” a spokesman for the LPBOA said. (OJ)

    In vain; we 138 travelers would have had a good exercise and lowered our cholesterol levels.

    That is how we need to work. The problem in Sri Lanka is that most can live with working a single day for a month.

    Does this mean they are going to drive faster and over-take even more?
