Islanders Asked Not to Panic

Port Blair, March 15: “There’s enough stock of fuel with the Indian Oil Corporation to fulfil the needs of the islanders”, said Shri Mohammed H Jadwet of the Jadwet Petrol Pump in a conversation with Andaman Chronicle.

Jadwet explained that one of the Petrol Bunks at Lambaline Port Blair has been closed due to some technical reasons by the IOC. This had created a rush at other petrol bunks. Meanwhile two other petrol bunks ran out of diesel being a Sunday when diesel could not be delivered timely at these bunks.

These minor issues had created a panic atmosphere after few people started spreading rumours about fuel getting exhausted in the City petrol bunks.

It’s just a rumour, which should be avoided, said Jadwet.
