Oil Tankers call off stir

269

IMPHAL, Nov 23: The All Manipur Petroleum Products Transporters’ Association has called off its proposed agitation of stopping fuel shipment after it struck an agreement with the authority concerned today.

It may be mentioned that the All Manipur Petroleum Products Transporters’ Association announced its decision to launch its agitation from today to protest transportation fare fixed by IOC and demand rectification of flaws in the terms and conditions of tender.

On the first day of the strike today, Malom Oil Depot remained non-operational and the depot ceased supplying fuel to petrol pumps.

At the same time, the attempt of All Manipur IOCL Dealers’ Association members to meet the Senior Depot Manager of Malom Oil Depot to request permission for issuing fuel to retail outlets went futile.

However, representatives of All Manipur IOCL Dealers’ Association, All Manipur Petroleum Products Transporters’ Association and Senior Depot Manager of Malom Oil Depot held a joint meeting later in the day where an agreement was reached. During the meeting, it was reportedly agreed that the interest of local transporters will be looked into.

Following an agreement, the All Manipur Petroleum Products Transporters’ Association has decided to call off its agitation immediately. At the same time, Malom Oil Depot resumed operation after the meeting.
