Fill the tanks of your motorcycles and other vehicles as the Petroleum Dealers Association has announced an indefinite strike before Monday, July 18.

According to the 24News HD TV Channel, Pakistan Petrol Dealers Association (PPDA) President Asif Gujjar, Information Secretary Jahanzeb Malik and Secretary General Chaudhry Noman Majeed announced an indefinite strike from July 18.

The petroleum dealers demanded that their working capital is triple but the volume of business is the same as before so the profit margin should be increased by six per cent.

They demanded the government keep its promise to increase the profit margin to 6 per cent to avoid closing the businesses.

They also announced that they will continue the strike and will not open petrol pumps till their demands are fulfilled. “Right now we receive only 3.90 per cent margin after-tax deduction,” they explained.
