Shortage of transport buses to ply on A9 road from Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 22 November 2009, 06:51 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) civil authorities in Jaffna Sinhala Mahavidyalaya sent back Sunday nearly half of the persons who wanted to travel from Jaffna to out stations on personal errands as there were no buses to take them, sources in Jaffna said. Only 1655 passengers were permitted by SLA to travel. Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) officials in Koa’ndaavil Depot said that their repeated requests to their superiors for more busses to be used in Jaffna peninsula remain unattended.

Many people in Jaffna peninsula who had been earlier refused travel pass to leave Jaffna had flocked at Jaffna Sinhala Mahavidyalaya SLA office Sunday to travel to various places in the south following the removal of SLA travel pass system which had been in force for the last three years.
