    Thanks for Yahapaalnaya, that we have seen enough of commissions and committees for last two and half years.

    Useless committes for everything. What a waste of time.

    partiot Tuesday, 07 November 2017 03:51 PM

    waste of time, good money and energy.

    Just Another Citizen Tuesday, 07 November 2017 02:53 PM

    Then why the hell do we have a minister and ministry? Shouldn't they all be sent home?

    Duminda Tuesday, 07 November 2017 04:45 PM

    All wasted mechanism to date. Please find a way to appoint a suitable person as a minister. Only general public is suffering in country/

    Just because the president appointed a committee, the oil tanker won't come any sooner. What we need is risk management. How do we avoid this in the future?. What is our backup plan?

    Right now what the people want is not committees, but fuel. It is essential for everything.

    soon will go home

    The real cause for the fuel crises never come up and it may be covered up. Undoubtedly it is the pure negligence of the ministry, the minister and the responsible officers.It is apparent that the country is depending on the supplies from the Indian Supplier.Why the govt can not keep different suppliers from different countries... is it due to the pact that they had with India to have another supplier from another country?

    Samitha Tuesday, 07 November 2017 04:25 PM

    Inefficient Minister. He has to answer for this .

    rew Tuesday, 07 November 2017 04:57 PM

    This Minister should be sacked. There is chaos in the country

    Sunil Tuesday, 07 November 2017 04:25 PM

    Did we have committees all these years to supply us fuel? What is needed is just some common sense.

    Premalal Tuesday, 07 November 2017 04:26 PM

    We need to appoint a committee to solve the sheer ineffectiveness of the government and the sheer stupidity of its ministers.

    sobers Tuesday, 07 November 2017 04:47 PM

    In capability, under performing, unions, lethargy, corruption... A small country with 21 million cant be manged by a giant parliament comprising 225 members. What a shame!

    chari Tuesday, 07 November 2017 05:16 PM

    We need fuel now not committees. The entire economy will collapse unless fuel is normally distributed within 48 hours.

    karthik Tuesday, 07 November 2017 05:18 PM

    You all can appoint any number of commissions but people are severely affected due to the shortage of fuel. People elected you all to solve their problems and to create problems for us. Simply talking will not do anything good.

    No proper planning for uninterrupted fuel supply due to reasons best known to the powers be. via DM Android App
