Petrol pump owners threaten indefinite strike in early Oct
“We’ve made the final appeal to the Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) chairman through a letter, dated September 4, to address our problems through discussions by a week,” Nazmul Haque, convenor of Bangladesh Petrol Pump and Tank-Lorry Owners-Workers Unity Council, told UNB. Nazmul Haque said the copy of the letter, which was given to the BPC Chairman, was also sent to the State Minister for Power and Energy and the Secretary of the Energy and Mineral Resources Division. “This is our final notice to the government before going on a non-stop strike across the country,” he said. There has been no response from the government as yet though over 10 days have elapsed since the letter was sent. “So, the Unity Council will announce its action programme this week to launch a non-stop strike from the first week of October,” said Nazmul Haque. “Actually, we’re taking time just because of Eid vacation. We don’t want to create any hazard for the mass people by enforcing a strike right now,” he said. The Unity Council, formed recently by the owners and workers of petrol pumps and tank-lorries, earlier observed a 9-hour strike on August 28 to press home their 12-point demand.
