Long wait, but no kerosene oil


Customers have been queuing for kerosene near the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) petrol shed in Kotagala, Hatton for the past 10 days. Customers who have been waiting in the queue lamented that they come to the petrol station every morning, wait in line and return to their homes at night, despite the inclement weather in the area. Workers at the fuel station also stated that they are not told anything and could not be bothered even if they were told when kerosene would be available.
