Tripura fuel shortage to be normalised; Pratima Bhoumik

Pratima Bhoumik said that fuel tankers have already left for Tripura and are going to reach the state.

The ongoing shortage of fuel in Tripura will be normalized in the next few days, informed Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Pratima Bhoumik while addressing the media.

In that regard, Union Minister of State Pratima Bhoumik said that she already had discussions with Minister of State in the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas Rameswar Teli and also with Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha regarding the ongoing motor spirit crisis in Tripura.

During the discussions, Bhoumik said that she has urged Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Rameswar Teli to take appropriate steps toward resolving the issues at the earliest and bring back normalcy.

While interacting with the media, Bhoumik added that fuel tankers have already left for Tripura and are going to reach the state.

Earlier on Wednesday, Tripura’s Secretary of Home, Food, Civil Supplies, and Consumer Affairs Saradindu Chowdhury also informed that the fuel crisis will become normal again as tankers loaded with petrol and diesel have already left from Assam’s Guwahati and Silchar city for Tripura.

Chowdhury during a press conference held in the Tripura State Secretariat in presence of Principal Secretary Transport LH Darlong and Additional Secretary Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Tapan Das, said that the ongoing fuel crisis is going on in the state since the last few days due to flood in Assam both tankers and trains with fuel could not enter the state.

Choudhury further added that there is a buffer stock of petrol in Tripura for a couple of days.
