Fearing the shortage of petroleum products in the days to come, people on Sunday queued up outside petrol pumps to buy fuel.
Consumers had started panic-buying petroleum products on Friday on the heels of protests announced by petroleum transporters to halt the loading and unloading of petroleum products from Indian depots the same day.
The long queue of buyers outside petrol pumps spilt into the weekend with buyers waiting in line even on Sunday although the petroleum dealers’ committee took back the protest threats on Saturday.
The National Petroleum Dealers Organisational Coordinating Committee had stopped collecting petroleum products since Friday citing that its demands remained unaddressed.
Here are some photos of people waiting in line to buy fuel at various petrol pumps in Kathmandu Valley captured by Post’s photographer Angad Dhakal & Beeju Maharjan.
