Diesel has been completely shut down. The power outage lasts for more than 10 hours a day. Because of this, people are facing a variety of problems. As they protested, President Gotabaya imposed a 36-hour curfew on the country.
The government has already imposed a financial emergency on the country. At present, Sri Lanka does not have foreign funds for imports. Diesel is required for buses and commercial vehicles. But no diesel was found at any of Sri Lanka’s stations. Currently, industries and other business establishments in Sri Lanka are closed.
