Money to be collected from protesters if private buses fined - Prasanna

Parliamentarian Prasanna Ranatunga yesterday said that money would be collected from the people participating in today’s protest, if private buses are fined by the Police for plying on unpermitted routes.

Ranatunga said that a minimal fine of Rs.1000 can be imposed on buses for plying on roads which have not been mentioned in the route permit. He added that the Passenger Transport Authority does not have power to cancel route permits of buses for plying on unpermitted routes.

He was addressing a press conference organised by the Joint Opposition in Colombo yesterday.

Parliamentarian Dullas Alahapperuma said that Colombo will witness the largest crowd ever in today’s protest against the government.
