Mar 14, Colombo: Minister of transport and Civil Aviation Nimal Siripala de Silva has categorically dismissing hearsay that the government considers privatizing the Transport Sector, assured that the Government will not take any action to privatize or sell the transport sector.

Addressing a ceremony held at the Railway Department, the Minister said that no one should be duped by the various propaganda mooted by Trade Unions and other parties for their existence.

The function was organized for the presentation of letters of appointment to the 29 newly recruited engine drivers and 69 Railway guards, state-run ITN reported.

Further addressing the function, Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said that although the Trade Unions had the right to win their rights, it was unreasonable to deceive the public.
