The ship carrying diesel arrived at the Colombo Port on March 22 is still anchored as the stocks have not yet been unloaded due to not being paid, in a continuous fuel crisis which has driven the country to a point where many fuel stations are closed.
The country has to rely entirely on fuel stocks arriving in the country backed by the debt facility provided by India, but there were no dollars to pay off the ship.
The country is suffering from a huge dollar crisis that even a ship carrying fuel cannot be paid off.
In the backdrop. power generation using fuel has come to a complete standstill.
