Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera said yesterday that he is hoping to announce a fuel price revision in April, which people can feel.
Addressing a rally in Minuwangoda, he said that the advantage of a stronger rupee will be given to the people in the next price revision.
The minister said price revisions on fuel will be implemented once a month, according to the price in the world market.
The minister said that the local government election candidates have requested to increase the fuel quota and they have requested the fuel quota of 5 liters per day, which is currently given per week for a motorcycle.
The Election Commission has also been informed that it will take about 6 months to find and bring in enough fuel to raise the quota for all 80,000 candidates.
He also mentioned that restructuring is definitely necessary to reduce the price of electricity and fuel. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
