SL Government must keep in mind this story and Railway Staff need to privatize as soon as possible but not the properties (Train, Stations and repair stations)
Henceforth need to recruit new staff under a private company agreement with no strike condition until discussed with relevant parties if any problem.
Selected army professional drivers need to send to India for a proper training. Then govt will be able to get their service when illegal strike.
