ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Oil Tankers Association observed a countrywide strike in protest against non-acceptance of their demands.

Owing to the strike, the transportation of petroleum products was suspended. As a result, there is danger of the petrol crisis in the country. The government had sought time to resolve the issue.

Protesters said that they were unable to continue their work under these circumstances. They demanded that the income tax rate should be reduced from three to two percent.
