Functions of many state institutions were disrupted as a result of the one-day token strike called by the National Trade Unions Centre and supported by several other trade unions. Reports said that certain services were carried out by using force on workers, while security forces personnel were seen carrying out services in the health sector. At the Colombo National Hospital, soldiers were seen doing patient registration.
Other hospitals too, had their outpatient and clinical services at a standstill. The Colombo Fort Railway Station was deserted by this afternoon. The Postal Department was also affected, with police offices in the outstations severely understaffed. Most schools had no academic activities carried out, with several of them closed for the day.
