The daily life of the general public is at risk of being further disrupted relative to the last week due to the limitation of transport services as a result of the fuel crisis.

The President of Government Nursing Officer’s Association, Saman Rathnapriya says although several suggestions have been made to the government for an appropriate method of calling health sector workers to the service, there has not been any proper response on the issue yet.

It is reported that not only the public transport bus services, but also the transport of essential food items has been seriously affected by the prevailing fuel crisis.

At the same time, the Secretary of the All Island Private Bus Owners’ Association, Anjana Priyanjith stated that the number of buses operating today will be further reduced up to five percent as the private buses do not receive required amounts of fuel either from the SLTB bus depots, nor from Lanka IOC.

As a result, the government employees have limited their attendance and reporting for duties while the limitations are being applied to the private and banking sector too.

Meanwhile it is also reported that many issues have arisen within the medical supplies and ambulance services of hospital due to the fuel shortage.
