Also, on July 5, all the dealers of the petrol pump in Chandigarh were on the protest of no-purchase day.
No sale of fuel at Chandigarh petrol pumps tomorrow
The dealers across Chandigarh had taken the decision to observe a strike tomorrow i.e on Wednesday as their profits margins are getting affected heavily due to the new petrol pricing system. The dealers made it clear that they do not intend to bring inconvenience into the lives of vehicle users but want to convey the central government that they should look for a solution to their losses after introducing dynamic fuel pricing system.
