Concerned over the fuel shortages and petrol pumps running dry, the government on Friday said it would deploy central forces to ensure supply lines are not dried due to the ongoing strike by oil sector executives.

"The Government will deploy central forces wherever necessary," Petroleum Secretary RS Pandey told reporters even as Petroleum Minister Murli Deora met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to brief him about the strike by officers of oil PSUs that entered the third day today.
