Minister Kumara Welgama has said that the country is indebted to the employees who carry out their duties without being concerned only about the salary.
The Minister expressed this view when he made a sudden inspection tour at the SLTB depot in Matara. The Minister said that the work of the employees is far from satisfactory although this situation can be changed with dedicated employees. There are 103 buses in the fleet of the Matara depot although only 67 buses are operated. Four hundred and twenty nine employees are on duty at the depot. The Minister pointed out how the depot can be developed through employees’ commitment.
