Minister Threatens Petrolium Workers

By Nirmala Kannangara - A tense situation has developed at the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) today following an alleged threat to petroleum employees by the Petroleum and Petroleum Resourses Minister A.H.M. Fowzie, according to Petroleum Joint Union Convener D.J. Rajakaruna.

The delay in filling bowsers at the Kolonnawa petroleum storage plant has irked Fowzie and led to the alleged threat on the workers.

“If the Minister could tell the print and electronic media that the work-to-rule campaign was unsuccessful and there is smooth functioning at the CPC, then why would he threaten the petroleum employees for the delay in filling the bowsers?” asked Rajakaruna.
