The President of the Private Bus Owners' Association Gemunu Wijeratne states that the bus drivers and their assistants who are engaged in passenger transport services will have to withdraw from the bus service if they are not given priority in vaccination. The union has decided to start the strike from next week.

Gemunu Wijeratne says that although requests have been made to the Director General of Health Services and other authorities in this regard on several previous occasions, no positive response has been received.

25% of buses have been taken out of service due to the corona risk.
