The public travelling to office this morning faced severe difficulties as a result of the strike.
The Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) had deployed extra buses on the streets to ensure day to day activities are not affected.
Some Sri Lanka Transport Board buses were attacked during the strike.
The SLTB sought police protection for the buses. Three-wheel operators also protested during the strike by blocking some roads and railway lines.
The public transport sector is demanding that the proposed Rs. 25,000 fine not be implemented. (Colombo Gazette)
