    Our train service and the trains we use are one of the worst in the world. Even Sub-Saharan African countries have better trains, stations and services. As a Sri Lankan I am embarrassed when they show our trains in the media. And these fools are demanding more. For what may I ask? Just privatize the entire railway and give it over to a operator to manage it. And sack 80% of the staff.
