COLOMBO (Daily Mirror) - The Lanka Private Bus Owners' Association (LPBOA) has decided not to provide buses to any political party to bring people to their rallies and meetings in the future.
LPBOA Chairman Gemunu Wijerathne told the Daily Mirror that providing buses to bring people to political rallies and meetings should be stopped at least now.
"All political parties, including extremists, socialists and capitalists, used to gather people for their rallies and meetings using buses, and most of the politicians used to mislead innocent people, and this had been the practice for the past seventy-five years, he said.
Therefore, the association has decided to support only political parties that do not bring people to their events.
"There should be a political party that people feel that they should come. Otherwise, there is no point in supporting the existing political parties that rob the people," he said.
