    THEY NEVER WORKED !!!!! SO WHY DO YOU SAY SHUT DOWN ?????? THEY WERE LIKE SHUT DOWN !!!!!! THE DELIVERY OF POST WERE NOT ACCURATE AND WERE NOT DONE PROPERLY ON DAILY BASE !!!!! THEY EVEN DISCARDED MILLIONS OF POST UNDELIVERED !!!!! THEY EFFICENTCY IS ONLY 10% THE 90% OF THE DAY ONLY GOSSIPING / SHOPPING / HAVING BREAKS / .... IF YOU CHECK THE CLEANLINESS COMPARED TO FOREIGN POST OFFICES WE ARE LIKE MEETHOTAMULLA !!!!!!!!! WE SPEND FOR NOTHING. IF YOU JUST VIST THE POST OFFICE OBSERVE THE WORKERS THEN YOU COULD CONCLUDE THEIR ENVIRONMENT !!!!!! BUT THEY WILL NOT MISS ANY FESTIVAL SUCH AS SINHALA/TAMIL NEW YEAR, CHRISTMAS ETC....

    Government need to listen to the signals given by the strikers and act wisely, so that no one is inconvenienced. Any unjust decision by the Government will definitely create never ending problems to Sri Lankans.
