Indefinite petrol pump strike from today

india Updated: Nov 17, 2006 01:49 IST

PETROLEUM dealers in Lucknow have decided to proceed on an indefinite strike from the midnight of Thursday to demand action against what they called harassment meted out to one of the HPCL petrol pump owners in the city.

A senior HPCL official already made it clear to the petroleum dealers on Wednesday that the company would not relent to  pressure from any dealer organization and would stick to its decision of imposing a fine and the 45-day closure norm on the erring HPCL dealer as per the stringent guidelines of the Union Ministry of Petroleum.

The Lucknow Petroleum Dealers Association on Wednesday had warned of an indefinite strike by owners of  petroleum retail outlets of all oil marketing companies including HPCL if  action was not taken against the HPCL officials who they maintained were misbehaving with the staff of Charan’s Petrol Pump while on an inspection visit. The HPCL petrol pumps remained closed for the second day on Wednesday in the city.
