    This is the reason these private bus maniacs should not be given route permits to operate their services atleast in the Northern province. Lets save the North from these good for nothing private bus mafia who have ruined the public transport system in the rest of the country. Let the govt give adequate buses to CTB so that they could provide an excellent service to the Northerners with good, well trained drivers and conductors.

    why should only the North get good service? All should be treated equally.

    The future President, we hope ( SF ) will provide more buses operated by the CTB with disiplined /trained Drivers on Jaffna/Colombo routes, which is the longest bus route in S/Lanka. Buses operated must not be more than 5 years old and should be maintained mechanically in first class condition.

    My cousine's life has been taken, unnecessarily, by untrained, ruthless drivers, of this sort. He was a very valuable person, with some standing, who had done many constructive things, for the progress of this country!
