    Who cares about the woes and the inconveniences suffered by the office workers who are the commuters who mostly use these trains? Why care about the common man? Let us have some more odyssey trains. This is the policy of this wretched government and the minister.

    Yes, why should anyone prioritise free loaders who do not pay for rail transport. How many of you are paying for the rail ticket? I think 60% of you guys travel free.

    What makes you think Sri Lankans will ever let india run our railway systems? I speak on behalf of the Sri Lankan community when I say we don’t want india’s intervention with our railway systems.
