The government has focused on closing down state institutions for two weeks as a temporary solution to the crisis facing the country, including fuel shortages. It has been proposed to give two weeks’ leave to schools and conduct online learning activities.
However, no final decision has been taken so far and a special discussion will be held today to take a final decision.
It has been suggested that the country should be locked down in the wake of the fuel crisis, but the President and the Prime Minister yesterday informed government officials that there was no need to take such action.
The President and the Prime Minister have stated that another fuel tanker is scheduled to arrive in the country next week and there will be no shortage of fuel due to this.
