Three-wheeler unions have requested the Minister of Energy to provide 5-6 litres of fuel for each three-wheeler six days a week.
Speaking at a media briefing in Kandy, Secretary of the All Island Three-Wheeler Drivers’ Association Kapila Galapitage said the prevalent fuel issues have heavily affected the profession.
Galapitage noted charges have been levelled against three-wheeler drivers in the recent past over the sale of fuel at higher prices.
He requested the President to enforce the law against individuals involved in the fuel racket.
Galapitage further said registered three-wheeler drivers of each province were prepared to formulate a plan with authorities to minimise fuel queues.
Galapitage said there are 950,000 registered three-wheeled drivers in the country and requested the Energy Minister to ensure they receive 5-6 litres of fuel to operate six days a week.
