Fuel supply to filling stations will be suspended if distribution obstructed – Kanchana


The Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekara said the supply of fuel to filling stations will be suspended in areas where the distribution process is obstructed by protesters.

Taking to his official Twitter earlier today (21), the Minister said organized groups are preventing fuel trucks to pass certain areas demanding they be unloaded at different fuel stations and threatening to set fire to them.

“If this continues we will have to suspend deliveries for the safety of the transport work force,” he said.
