He urged members of the general public to avoid panic purchase of petrol, storing petrol in their houses and travelling with petrol in their cars saying, the department has enough of the product in stock.

He called on the public to report any filling station engaged in sharp practices, and not to buy petrol from roadside hawkers to avoid adulterated product that might damage their vehicles and machines.
