Tripura’s fuel crisis

The full blown fuel crisis in Tripura is having a crippling effect on the state’s normal life, the crisis was caused by the  dilapidated condition of NH-8 considered to be the life line of the state.

Thousands of trucks and oil tankers have been stranded in Assam’s Karimganj district for days now due to the heavy damage caused to the Assam-Agartala National Highway (NH-8) by heavy rains in the past 10 days.

The situation has worsened to the point that the Tripura government has been forced to impose rationing in the use of fuel across the state.

Petrol pumps in the state have been instructed not to sell fuel worth more than Rs 200 at a time to vehicles like motorbikes and small cars.
