The 48-hour bandh decision calling all petrol pumps in Guwahati city to close for the duration has been called off by the North East India Petroleum Dealers Association (NEIPDA).

NEIPDA on Thursday shared that the protest was called off after the Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup Metropolitan Area called for a meeting of oil companies, law enforcement agencies and petroleum dealers in which the oil companies had agreed to the demands put forth by the dealers.

“The oil companies agreed to all our demands. Our basic demands were that dealers adhere to basic petroleum rules. We have been following the rules but the companies had been violating these norms. Whatever minutes had been signed since 2016 till present will all now be implemented,” Rajib Goswami, president of North East India Petroleum Dealers Association, told EastMojo.

The NEIPDA had called for closing of petrol pumps across Guwahati for 48 hours from 6 am on Friday. The association said the decision was taken to press for its 10-point charter of demands.

Their demands had been placed before the oil manufacturing companies that failed to respond despite repeated attempts by the dealers.
