After petrol, India sends kerosene to crisis-hit Sri Lanka1 min read 28 May 2022, 07:27 PM IST
India has sent 15,000 litres of kerosene for fisherfolk in crisis-hit Sri Lanka.
On May 28, India provided 15,000 litres of kerosene to Sri Lanka to aid 700 fishermen and power ferry services in the Tamil-dominated Jaffna city, just days after delivering 40,000 metric tonnes of petrol to the debt-ridden island nation in the midst of its worst economic crisis in decades. Last month, India offered an additional $500 million credit line to Sri Lanka to help the neighbouring country acquire fuel after its foreign exchange reserves plunged drastically in recent months, prompting a depreciation of its currency and spiralling inflation.
