Srinagar, Jan 12: Fuel stations along Srinagar-Jammu highway are shutting their establishments in evenings, causing inconvenience to commuters.
Commuters said that they are facing a lot of inconveniences due to the non-availability of the petrol/diesel at the fuel stations along the national highway.
“We were short of fuel a few days ago on way to Jammu from Kashmir. On reaching Banihal, we had to stop our vehicle for hours for want of fuel as not a single station was open,” said Tameem of Baramulla.
Another commuter Bilal Ahmed said that some staffers at fuel stations refused to fill the tank while many misbehaved.
“I was in a situation where I could not go back or move beyond the point in search of the fuel station as I had already left the 3 stations past, who refused to fill the tank. Staffers at the fuel stations resorted to the foul language and misbehaved on request to fill fuel,” he added.
A staffer at fuel station in Banihal said there is a constant fear of dacoits and robbery during the night hours which is why they shut their outlets during night.
Meanwhile, similar reports have been poured in from the other areas across the Kashmir valley.
Divisional commissioner P K Pole when contacted said that he will look into the issue. (KNO)
