There was fuel shortage in Belagavi for the past 4 months after the IOC Desur plant fire incident but now the fuel shortage has worsened.
Even now the fuel is being supplied from Hubballi, Vijapura, Goa as the Desur depot is still not functioning.
Earlier the shortage was at IOC petrol pumps only and they used to get stocks delayed twice a week, but now that frequency has dipped and with over load at other pumps all pumps are facing the shortage and even some pumps are rationing the supply to Rs.100.
The fuel shortage has almost in entire North Karnataka with fuel shortage being reported from Hubballi, Bagalkot as well.
The administration must look into this immediately and see that adequate supply of fuel is ensured in the city otherwise there will situation of chaos.
Also the social media is doing rounds with messages stating that there will be no fuel for the next month, so stock up, which is causing a lot of panic buying.
