MAHENDRANAGAR:

The continuing shortage of petroleum products in the far-west has hit the transport sector hard. Drawing the attention of authorities concerned towards the shortage, half a dozen transport entrepreneurs had called a transport strike on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Nepal Oil Corporation has said that 100 kilolitres (KL) of diesel will arrive on Friday and an additional 300 KL will be delivered on Saturday. Once the delivery is made, vehicular movement is expected to resume from Sunday.
