The Petroleum Ministry today allayed fears of any petrol shortage, insisting that people should not panic unnecessarily as the CPC would be issuing 750 metric tonnes of petrol to filling stations from Saturday.

Petroleum Resources Deputy Minister Anoma Gamage said 40,000 metric tonnes of petrol stocks were expected on Monday (6) while stressing that the CPC also had sufficient petrol stocks reserved for use in case of an emergency.

The deputy minister said all measures would be taken to prevent any inconveniences caused to the people. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Daily need of the country is 3000 MT. You are issuing 750 MT and asking public not to panic?

    The deputy minister's press briefing on TV last night had added confusion to the chaos instead of allaying the fears. Government must appoint someone who could talk what is only necessary and to the point to defuse the tension.

    Minister said 80% of the need will cover. But even @ 2 pm not a single shed in Nugegoda, Maharagama to Kottawa got fuel. It is same with Piliyamdala area. Now I can I get an idea why Sri Lanka lost so many matches during his captaincy. Something wrong in his mathematical calculations....
