Hatton motorists ignore Govt plea


Despite the Government’s appeal not to queue at fuel stations for three days, a three-kilometre long vehicle queue was seen near a Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) filling station in Hatton. The drivers said they were in the queue for several days and didn’t have fuel to return home. They added that they won’t leave until they are able to fill up. Furthermore, long lines of diesel vehicles were seen near Hatton’s CPC and Lanka IOC fuel stations.
