@dialoglk I made a complain regarding coverage issue at our residence,till now there has been no response from anyone. complain 1-1124652489— Muhammed Aadhil (@aadhilnet) May 11, 2015
Day 3 - 12th of May, called back Dialog cusomter care, they said, They had called me in the morning but no answer, but my phone had no missed calls in the morning, also I requested an update via twitter, but they gave an answer saying they called me in the evening, either-ways I had no missed called in the morning nor in the evening.
Dear @dialoglk so far nobody has contacted me regarding my complain. any updates? #Customercare #LKA #Poorservice— Muhammed Aadhil (@aadhilnet) May 12, 2015

So far no calls....
Day 4 - 13th of May, I called the customer care today, they gave an another excuse by saying the complain end date is on 14th and by today someone will call and confirm me, as usual Dialog has no guilty of repeatedly using the words "We are sorry sir" the word "sorry" has lost it's value with Dialog, they don't mean it, they use it as a strategy to cool down the customer and make fake apologies.
Dialog Twitter ignores my reminder, no reply afterwards
Dear @dialoglk you promised someone will contact me,I was expecting a call yesterday,I didn't get any call from so called #customercare #lka— Muhammed Aadhil (@aadhilnet) May 13, 2015
Time 7pm, I received a call middle of the traffic from Dialog technical department, his first question was " What is your problem?" wow, Dialog needs some serious serious training to their employees how to handle customers, through out his conversation I understood this guy is not much educated and sounded more arrogant in his questions and replies, I have to repeat the entire scenario middle of the traffic (rather this guy could have studied the complain sheet). He left the phone by saying something I couldn't follow up.
Day 5 - 14th of May, Time 8:10am I got a call from another technical guy, I was getting ready for office and I was in a rush, this guy was not rude as last one, he asked me to do some changes on the phone, still the signal shows low, so he mentioned that he will transfer this problem to Regional Engineer to sort out this problem.
@aadhilnet Our apologies for the delay, We'll share this with the relevant team and get back to you with assistance on priority. ^Riya— Dialog Axiata (@dialoglk) May 22, 2015

In Sri Lanka we call this POLITICS
All credit goes to the cartoonist for making this picture more relevant to the situation.
Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa's situation is well explained.
The power hunger is always WANTED sometimes by you for others or sometimes by others for you. ;)
