    Because of this strike we confronted serious problem without trains. Trade union leaders take to their other counterparts and should organize general one then we don't face hazardous travelling to our work places.

    May day! May Day!!

    CGR is the backbone of transport people and goods in Sri Lanka and the wellbeing of Department workers especially, driver's needs are to be looked after. A big salute to their dedication.
    CGR Bosses and the Government- Immediately fulfil their demand!!
    Show green light to their lives (that can be done if you stop the corrupted locomotive deal with Chinese)!!
