Diesel crisis at Parbatipur depot due to indifference of railways.

Due to the indifference of the railways, a diesel crisis has arisen at the Parbatipur Railhead Oil Depot in Dinajpur.

Due to this, no oil was supplied from Parbatipur depot on Wednesday. On the other hand, the current Eri season may see a diesel crisis in eight northern districts.
Demand for diesel in the north has doubled since January due to the Erie season.

Three companies (Padma, Meghna and Jamuna) need 15 lakh liters of diesel per day as 5 lakh per company and it should be supplied uninterruptedly. Otherwise, there will be a diesel crisis. At present oil is coming from Daulatpur depot in Khulna to Parbatipur depot by tank wagon by rail. One oil rack per day (one rack = 30 wagons, one wagon = 50,000 liters) means 1.5 million liters of oil. But due to the indifference of the railways, there has been a diesel crisis at the Parbatipur depot.

According to a source, one rack was loaded on Monday and one on Tuesday. If all goes well, the wreck should reach Parbatipur depot from Khulna within 24 hours. But even after 3 days, no oil rake has reached the depot. As a result, no oil was supplied on Wednesday as the depot was empty of diesel.
