Conspiracy behind fuel short-age

The UNP’s trade union arm, Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya (JSS), yesterday urged the government to order the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to probe the recent petrol shortage which it said was consequent to a conspiracy.

Welcoming the government’s decision to appoint a committee on the request of the Petroleum Industries Minister Arjuna Ranatunga to probe the fuel issue, JSS Petroleum Corporation branch head Ananda Palitha stressed that in addition to the investigation carried out by the committee a separate investigation should be conducted by the CID at the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) and Ceylon Petroleum Storage Terminal Ltd. (CPSTL).


Besides, the JSS has suggested that the government allow the trade unions and CPC and CPSTL officers to participate in the probe committee proceedings.
