Trade Unions state a number of issues have arisen due to the improper distribution of fuel in the country.
Speaking to NewsRadio Trade Unionist Ananda Palitha said the public suffered various inconveniences due to the inefficient distribution program of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation.
Ananda Palitha further commented on the severe shortage of kerosene oil in the country.
He noted 85% of the country did not possess kerosene oil to meet their needs.
Ananda Palitha charged the CPC of not taking steps to distribute available stocks of kerosene oil.
Ananda Palitha added estate workers in Talawakelle and Hatton had not received kerosene oil in months while fishermen had not received kerosene oil since April.
The Trade unionist said the CPC was operating in a corrupt manner supplying fuel stocks based on bribes and commissions.
He added the CPC acted like a racketeer on the black market and condemned the operations of the corporation.
