The private bus operations from the Jaffna District to the provinces were suspended yesterday (25), Jaffna District Private Bus Owners’ Association President P. Renganathan said.
Renganathan said that such a situation had arisen as a result of difficulties in obtaining fuel to operate buses.
Discussions held with Jaffna District Secretary K. Mahesan to obtain fuel for private buses in the district were futile, according to Renganathan.
This decision was taken due to the unavailability of fuel and the entire private bus operation in the district had come to a halt as a result, Renganathan added.
