The spokesperson announced that it was also decided that petroleum dealers across the state will also not purchase any oil from the Oil Companies on February 15. No fuel will be purchased on February 16 as well in light of Bharat Bandh in support of the farmers’ protest. No purchase of fuel for 2 days will leave the stocks at their minimum level, hence resulting in a shortage on February 17 as well.
PPDAP President Doaba said that oil marketing Companies (OMCs) have not been increasing the margin of petroleum dealers, which was last revised in August 2017. A demand letter was sent to the presidents of the oil companies to increase the dealer margin and a copy was also sent to the Prime Minister.
