It is no secret that decay in human values in society has caused ill treatment towards many persons.

Recently an incident was reported where a 28 year old pregnant mother in Ulapane suffered critical injuries after falling from a bus.

It was even more shocking that no one in the bus had stepped forward to assist the pregnant mother who fell out of the bus, when it was taking a bend.

We spoke to Chairman of the Lanka Private Bus Owners Association if bus employees couldn’t be more considerate towards pregnant mothers.

He stated that passengers need to be educated to offer the seats allocated for clergy and pregnant mothers as they tend to shy away from their duty.
