Though all petrol pumps carry flyers and notices saying that the sale of petrol is banned in cans or bottles, the reality is quite different. All petrol pumps are regularly selling petrol in open containers. The owners of these petrol pumps have no regard for the law. Though we see the same kind of disregard all over the country, this is very harmful and can end in disaster. I would like to request all the concerned authorities to make sure that this law is carried out at all petrol pumps.
