Tripura Government Actively Addresses Fuel Crisis Amidst Train Disruptions


Efforts to alleviate the fuel crisis in Tripura are in full swing, with the government actively engaging with the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) and the Ministry to find a solution. The crisis intensified following a recent derailment incident between Jatinga Lampur and New Harangajao in Assam, which disrupted the flow of goods trains to Tripura.

Transport Minister of Tripura, in a statement, affirmed that all necessary measures are being taken to address the fuel shortage plaguing the state. The derailment incident has exacerbated the situation, leading to delays in the transportation of essential goods, including fuel, to Tripura.

The government is in constant communication with IOCL and the Ministry to expedite the restoration of goods train services and ensure the timely delivery of fuel to Tripura. Despite the challenges posed by the derailment incident, efforts are underway to mitigate the impact of the fuel crisis on the state’s residents and businesses.

The derailment incident has underscored the vulnerability of Tripura’s fuel supply chain and highlighted the need for robust infrastructure and contingency plans to deal with such emergencies. The government is committed to enhancing the resilience of the state’s transportation network and minimizing disruptions caused by unforeseen events like derailments.

Residents of Tripura have been facing hardships due to the fuel shortage, with long queues at petrol pumps and rationing of fuel becoming commonplace. The government’s swift response to the crisis and its proactive approach in engaging with stakeholders demonstrate its commitment to resolving the situation at the earliest.

In addition to liaising with IOCL and the Ministry, the government is exploring alternative measures to alleviate the fuel shortage, including the possibility of sourcing fuel from neighboring states through alternate routes. These efforts are aimed at ensuring uninterrupted supply of fuel to meet the needs of the state’s residents and industries.
