    Do not destroy this national asset. Think of you duty for the company. If you all are included in to permanent carder. The company will fall down. You should not have signed the agreement for contract basis. But you all have signed it now demanding permanency . How unfair is that?

    These workers are supplied by the manpower suppliers. Tomorrow they will work somewhere else, which their bosses ask them. So why SLT is responsible ???

    Now every one has got the freedom which they did not have during MR's rule. The protesters infringe on the freedom of Road users, which is wrong.
