The All Ceylon School Children Transport Association says it will be severely burdened if a stringent programme is not implemented from today to provide fuel for buses and vans transporting school children.
Speaking to NewsRadio, Chairman of the Association Malsiri De Silva said the government lacks a stringent programme in this regard.
He said they are facing several issues at present due to the diesel shortage adding they are severely inconvenienced.
Malsiri De Silva noted they informed the government in this regard adding however relevant officials failed to provide concessions.
He added despite several requests the government failed to provide diesel through SLTB depots or government-owned filling stations.
De Silva said they will face difficulties in transporting school children today if diesel is not provided for school transport.
