Tripura : Today in view of the reports received about the shortage of petroleum products in Tripura and the requests received from MPs of Tripura and Biplab Deb, BJP State President of Tripura, Minister of State (I/C), P&NG Dharmendra Pradhan reviewed the availability of petroleum products in the State of Tripura.

The supply of products has been badly affected due to the bad road condition of NH-44 to the State. During the last two months, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural gas had been writing to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways for improvement of the condition of NH-44.

Pradhan had also spoken to Minister of Railways to explore the possibility of movement of petroleum products by rail mode of transportation.

Accordingly, the Ministry of Railways and MoP&NG have decided to move the Road Tankers using Railway Wagons based on the concept of Roll-on and Roll-off and necessary instructions have been issued to the field officials. It is expected that the situation with respect to supply of petroleum products in the State will improve significantly in the next few days.

Pradhan directed the Indian Oil Corporation to ensure adequate availability of petroleum products in Tripura at the earliest. IOC has reported that total 324 KL of petrol (against average requirement of 360 KL) and 800 KL of diesel (against average requirement of 900 KL) was supplied in the last two days to ease the situation.
