Ranil’s official vehicle breaks down

E-mail Print
UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had a nasty experience when his official vehicle broke down twice last Sunday due to the use of low quality diesel fuel.

The Leader of the Opposition had this problem when travelling from Polonnaruwa to Ampara in the official vehicle assigned to him by the government.

As a result of the engine failure the vehicle could not be driven any further. Guided by the fault indicating bulb on the vehicle, the diesel filter had been replaced and the balance diesel in the tank drained out and replaced with super diesel. This had corrected the fault.

Mr. Wickremesinghe commenting on this unpleasant experience said that, on an earlier occasion, he had filled the tank of his private vehicle with inferior petrol imported by the Rajapakse government and the vehicle had been damaged.. Now this inferior diesel fuel had damaged his official vehicle. He said this showed that the government was not only dumping garbage on the people but also on his vehicles.

Surprisingly, being given fuel free from government, he has pumped the lower quality than the super diesel. Again, shows lack of planing and vision. Time to move aside and handover to a visionary.

The point is, that there is bad fuel being sent to the pumps and while that is causing break-downs, those responsible are smirking. When will we learn? In China, those responsible will have to face a firing squad

Well, idk, as a public servant, running on taxpayers funds for upkeep, I guess pumping the cheaper diesel is the right thing to do, with as minimum cost to taxpayers. unlike MANY govt chumchas who want the very best from the Reserves at high cost to the taxpayer.

why do not people think rationally like this when voting? @ that time they think only of the Kukul Mus Bath passale and the TOT!
So you have to live with low quality fuel. If the vehicle breaks down then put your shoulder to the whhel and "Thallu"! Who knows one may get a free shot and Buth Passale!

Imagine the inconvenience faced by the poor UNPers due to your low quality leadership. Low quality diesel problem was only for few days and few vehicle owners. Low quality leadership problem is for all UNPers and will prevail for at least another 6 years. What hope do they have even after that?

This issue is about the quality of the Diesel, where the Govt is accountable and is not about Ranil. It's good if we can be more objective than this.
