Dilan urges public to boycott LIOC fuel stations 

Member of the ruling Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) - Dilan Perera has urged the public to boycott Lanka Indian Oil Corporation (LIOC) fuel.

He was speaking on the the petrol price hike imposed by LIOC in Sri Lanka, during a media conference held in Colombo.

The LIOC had increased the price of Octane 92 petrol by Rs. 5 selling at Rs. 142/litre as opposed to Rs. 137/litre at state owned CPC sheds.
As the first step, we urge at the least the 6.9 million who voted for president Gotabaya Rajapaksa, to boycott LIOC fuel stations, he said.

If the LIOC is disregarding government instructions and increasing prices while taking advantage of legal loopholes in agreements signed with the UNP, all of us, including the president who was elected to power by the public, urge the public to boycott LIOC fuel stations, he added. 
He urged the public to approach fuel stations of the CPC instead.
