* Nearly 1,800 of Sri Lanka's state-owned buses are in dilapidated condition
Tue, Dec 4, 2012, 01:32 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 04, Colombo: Transport Minister of Sri Lanka Kumara Welgama has said that a large number of buses under the state owned bus service were in dilapidated condition.

He has told parliament that close to 1,800 buses belonging to the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) were not in roadworthy condition.

The Minister has made this statement in response to a question posed by the United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Rosy Senanayake.

However, Senanayake's question had resulted in Minister Welgama commenting about the UNP MP's beauty, to which the former Mrs. World had responded that the Minister's comments were insulting to her.
