    Nationalise all private buses , because they don't provide a proper service to the public... We have a Govt. that is making F 1 racing tracks and having glorious parties spending millions... why not buy more Govt, buses and run these private jokers out of business in 5 yrs...

    As one minister said all the problems relating to public transport services will be solved once the buses have been painted in red, blue and yellow (not in green I suppose)

    Please strike all over the country and stay on strike so that the rest of the country can breath at ease.

    This happens only in Sri Lanka ! Government should provide free transport.

    Do at least two/ three weeks strike and give a good lesson to this passengers. i think he never do as he does not have enough courage.
