FUEL SHORTAGE HIT DODA TOWNSHIP
FAIZAN ALI TRAMBOO
Doda, Nov 16: Fuel stations in this mountainous township were running dry following the strike by the Oil Tankers Association in Jammu.
Like rest of the state the oil supply to this mountainous belt was stopped by the distributors since yesterday. The call created a panic in the district and within few hours all the fuel stations went out of the stock.
“There was no patrol or diesel available at the lone patrol pump in Doda”, Abdul Rashid, a local resident said adding that hundreds of vehicles remained parked outside the patrol pump as people were told that the supply may arrive.
The locals also accused the station owner for distributing the fuel only to the well off people leaving commoners to suffer.
“There is enough patrol available at the fuel station but due to some unknown reason it is not being provided to the people”, a local said.
DDC Doda Farooq Ahmed Khan, when contacted, said that the strike has affected most parts of the state. “However, we have kept some patrol reserved for the emergency purposes”, he added.
