The Minister of Transport, Nimal Siripala de Silva says that the strike launched by private bus workers today was a failure.
 
However, All Ceylon Private Bus Workers’ Association’s organizer, U. K. Kumararatna Renuka said the strike will continue tomorrow as well.
 
The strike was launched in protest of the new spot fine and on several other issues such as upgrading worker facilities, salary increases, and job assurance.
 
However, the SLTB said the strike was not held in 7 provinces.
 
Although it was launched in the Western and the Southern provinces, it failed to create a big impact on the daily transport.
 
A shortage of private buses in service was reported from the Gampaha and the Kalutara districts.
 
There were shortages of long-distance buses in the Southern province as well.
 
Meanwhile, Lanka Private Bus Owners’ Association’s president, Gemunu Wijerathna, and Inter-Provincial Bus Owners’ Union chairman, Sarath Vijitha Kumara said the strike was a failure.
