Khammam: The district president of Petroleum Dealers Association (PDA) Metkuri Gopal Rao said that as part of nationwide protest against the strict rules imposed by the Oil companies belonging to Central government BPCL, HPCL and IOCL, a one-day bandh of petrol bunks across the country will be observed on October 13.
In this regard, a meeting was held with the representatives of PDA here at private function hall in Khammam on Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion, Rao said instead of implementing the agreement made by all three oil marketing companies on November 4, 2016 and increase the dealer commissions, the oil companies were exerting pressure on the petroleum dealers citing silly reasons.
He demanded the government to bring the petrol and diesel under Goods and Services Tax to help common people. If oil companies failed to address the issues of dealers, an indefinite bandh would be launched from October 27, he warned.
PDA representatives Dr Nagabattini Ravi, Kurapati Manjula, Jupudu Babu, Karthik, Ranganath, Dasari Daniel, M Ramesh, Premneel Kumar, Ananth Padmanabham, K Sathyaprasad, K Janardan, Ravi Kumar and G Janardan Rao were present along with others.
