Peshawar

June 30, 2020

GUJRANWALA: Excessive numbers of mini-petrol stations established in different areas of city are irking citizens. Reportedly, such filling stations have become dangerous for locals.

These outlets are established on roads and streets ignoring all regulations. According to locals, the district administration and police are not taking any action against the owners of such mini-petrol stations who are involved in illegal sale of petrol. Such filling stations are established in small shops in populated areas and petrol is stored in drums and plastic containers without adopting proper protective measures. Such storage of petrol is highly dangerous and can cause an untoward accident in nearby localities at any time. The citizens urged the authorities concerned to look into the matter.
