The Sri Lanka Transport Board said that if the Railway Strike is launched this evening, they are ready to deploy additional buses.

The Deputy General Manager of SLTB G. H. R. T. Chandrasiri said that based on the needs of the people, they are preparing to deploy 800 additional buses.

Previously, the Railway Trade Unions had decided to launch the strike from midnight yesterday based on several demands including salary anomalies.

However, due to a promise by the Transport Minister that the Finance Minister will hold a discussion with them this evening, the Railway Trade Unions decided to temporarily postpone the strike.

Secretary of the Engine Drivers’ Association Indika Dodangoda told the Hiru News Division that if solutions are not received on behalf of their demands at these talks they will definitely launch the strike.
