    If this is a beggar's wound I would call the "coat of living" a cardiac arrest.

    Some people saw LTTE terrorism in the same way; but solved ultimately. Likewise this bus-mafia can also be tamed in a right manner soon!

    MR won't mind as intervening is one of his favourite pass-times.

    Why should anyone even bother with these private bus owners. Let the SLTB take over this crises and it will show the private bus owners their service is not really required.

    Is MR the acronym for Mighty Ruler?

    Once local election ends you could increase any amount. Now its a lost battle. With the interest you will get the hike after the election

    over 70% of the buses on the road are private buses. How can that be done. Think!!!

    You have a great sense of humour.

    This is the also the only country where the cost of living rises uncontrollably and the govt does not increase your salaries and tells you to manage on the same income year after year.

    Mr. President, Government, ministers, opposition members and the bus owners can make any decisions. But end of the day the biggest looses are people. They have no say in it.

    No, not the president, Gota should intervene this problem.

    Napster Sunday, 09 January 2011 08:26 AM

    Absolutely Correct!!!

    N Sunday, 09 January 2011 09:15 AM

    kenny fernando Sunday, 09 January 2011 09:32 AM

    Konde bendapu china Sunday, 09 January 2011 09:47 AM

    Albert Sunday, 09 January 2011 10:50 AM

    The minister of transport has bragged the he will bring out the whole SLTB fleet comprising of air conditioned bused to meet the demand of traffic should the private bus operators stop work. Now is the time for the minister to show his fleet of SLTB buses to the public.

    Kin Ba Nut Sunday, 09 January 2011 12:01 PM
