The supply of fuel oil has remained suspended in Rajshahi, Rangpur and Khulna divisions since Sunday morning as petrol pump owners and workers are enforcing a strike.
Sale and transportation of fuel oil from around 2,000 petrol pumps in these divisions stopped at 6am, said Bangladesh Petrol Pump Owners’ Association Senior Vice-President MA Momin Dulal, the UNB reported.
The association on November 26 gave until November 30 to fulfill their 15 demands that include payment of 7.5 percent sales commission, introduction of accident insurance of Tk 5 lakh for tank lorry workers, and an end to police harassment.
Power, Energy and Mineral Resources secretary called a meeting with the association’s leaders on December 15 which they have rejected, said Dulal.
“The strike will continue until our demands are met,” he added.
