Fuel filled into cans only those with approval!

The Petroleum Corporation said that fuel would not be filled into canisters or barrels except for those who have obtained permission.

Its chairman Sumith Wijesinghe stated that steps should be taken to obtain the fuel required for industrial and agricultural activities through the methodology prepared for that purpose.

He said that this step was taken to prevent a shortage of fuel by various racketeers.

However, on Sinhala-Hindu New Year day, many petrol stations across the country were closed and long queues were seen at many petrol stations.
