Oil tanker operators call off strike
Srinagar, July 4: The J&K Oil Tankers’ Association today called off its strike following the assurances by the administration to look into their demand.
Ranjit Singh Raina, President, Oil Tankers’ Association confirmed to Greater Kashmir that the strike has been called off.
The association was demanding Rs five lakh as compensation for the family of a slain driver, Akshay Kumar of Sunderbani in Rajouri who was murdered sometime before in mysterious circumstances.
The association was also demanding government job for the wife of the slain driver.
Raina said the government “assured us that they will release one lakh rupees in favour of the victim’s family and also provide job to his wife.”
“We will now start our work from tomorrow and resume supplies from early morning,” he said.
Pertinently, the strike call was given yesterday by the Oil Tankers Association after a throat slit body of driver Akshay Kumar was found buried in Qazigund area, on June 30.
Hundreds of oil tankers daily carry supply from three depots including Hindustan Petroleum Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation and Indian Oil Corporation from Jammu to the petrol pumps across the state, which remained affected during the strike.
