The country will be completely going to the shutdown?

A senior official of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC)’s trade union has recently stated that there are only 1,100 tons of petrol and 7,500 tons of diesel left in Sri Lanka, which is not even enough to supply fuel per day, the Daily Mirror reports.

While Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera was assuring the public last week that a fuel tanker would arrive, he finally stated that it would be difficult to say when a ship would return.
However, Minister Wijesekera said last week that the expected stock of petrol on June 23 was a day late. Sri Lanka has been badly documented by international companies due to payments default and companies now require international bank guarantees for new orders.
Sources from the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation said that no oil tanker had arrived in Sri Lanka last week due to Sri Lanka’s failure to make the required payments and provide international bank guarantees.

If the crisis does not result in the shipment of the new fuel, the country will be completely going to the shutdown this week. Minister Wijesekera’s statement that the token system for providing fuel to the public will also be useless as the existing small stocks of fuel are being used for essential services.

Sources say that transportation has already been disrupted and a long power cut will be in effect soon due to the failure to supply fuel to the power plants.
