The All Ceylon Bus Passengers Association claims the public will be severely inconvenienced as a result of the decision reached by the government to increase bus fares once again.
The Association said the government must manage prices of essential goods including fuel and protect bus operators and commuters.
Speaking to NewsRadio Chairman of the Association Vimukthi Dushantha said several issues have arisen within the bus industry as a result of fuel prices increasing.
He added the government failed to propose a sustainable solution to the prevailing crisis.
He said instead, the present administration is continuing to increase fuel prices and bus fares.
Dushantha noted the public is burdened across all sectors adding the government must provide a prompt sustainable solution to reduce the cost of living.
He added failure to do so will lead to the people taking to the streets to overthrow the government.
