Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 11 (ANI): State petrol pump dealers on Wednesday called-off their October 13 strike, following United Petroleum Front's (UPF) withdrawal from the same.

The nationwide strike on October 13 was to press for various demands, including better margins and inclusion of petroleum products in the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Meanwhile, UPF had warned that if the demands were not met at the earliest, fuel dealers will be forced to stop indefinitely purchase and sale operations from October 27.

UPF represents over 54,000 dealers from the Federation of All-India Petroleum Traders, the All-India Petroleum Dealers Association and the Consortium of Indian Petroleum Dealers. (ANI)
