Citizens have been facing a fuel crisis since Sunday, and day after the situation is worsening. Even today huge lines were seen at petrol pumps. Panic buying is again a cause of worry and some petrol pumps are capping the supply to Rs.100 or 200.
There was a meeting held with the DC and the citizens where the DC said the Oil depot officers have not acted promptly and hence this chaos has occurred. The officers first said the shortage was due to MRPL shutdown but MRPL in a statement has denied any delay in supplies.
In the scorching sun people are going from Pump to pump in search of petrol.
We are hearing from Monday that, fuel supply would be better in the coming days, but nothing really has changed on the ground.
