Diesel stocks dispatched. 3,500 metric tonnes for power generation

Diesel stocks are now being dispatched for fuel stations island wide, revealed the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CEYPETCO).

It has been decided to release 3,500 metric tonnes of diesel for power generation on a daily basis, in a move to curb the power interruptions, which at present are exhausting the general public.

The CEYPETCO had suspended the supply of diesel in recent days due to non-availability of stocks and the absence of dollars required for purchases and this had led to the closure of many fuel sheds across the country.

The power cuts approved in response to the fuel shortage had exceeded 13 hours a day.

In the backdrop, the public uprising against the government hit a fever pitch, later to be met with an island wide curfew effective from 06 pm yesterday to 06 am tomorrow. However, demonstrations are still taking place in some parts of the island regardless of the curfew.
