    Gemunu remembers the last strike. ( Neluwa, neluwa, hondatama neluwa. ) So now is ok with any percentage of increase.

    when will they increase the standard of private buses ? sri lankan buses are technically a metal box with 4 wheels assembled with an indian lorry engine.

    With the present state of the public transport service offered a fare increase it not acceptable. It is similar to cattle being transported for slaughter.
