Nepal is considering rationing oil and fuel, a Nepal Oil Corp spokesman said Saturday, after hundreds of trucks were held up this week at the India border when protesters against a new constitution gathered to block the road.About 900 trucks carrying food, fuel and other items were lined up on the Indian side of the Raxaul-Birgunj border Saturday, said Kamlesh Kumar, assistant commissioner of customs at the border point, as protesters from the Madhesi Morcha party blocked the road in Nepal for a third day.Nepalese officials, however, pinned blame for the logjam on India, Nepal's southern neighbor and biggest trading partner, which has been drawn into the political crisis after criticizing Nepal's political leadership for rushing through the constitution despite the dissent.
