The Government and people of Sri Lanka have agreed to reconsider the current quantity of emergency stockpiling of supplies when it emerged that the country has only two weeks of buffer fuel but over five week’s worth of alcohol.
A spokesperson for the Government said, “As a result of the number of recent incidents, we asked the public to stock up on emergency supplies in the event of a crisis of disaster. The first thing most people went and purchased was alcohol. One person said that as most antibacterial medicines contain alcohol, a bottle of Mendis would serve more than one purpose, unlike alcohol.”
“We are also investigating if we can power vehicles through alcohol fumes as they are much more prevalent in the country,” the spokesperson added.
