    GUWAHATI: The Greater Guwahati unit of the North East India Petroleum Dealers’ Association (NEIPDA) has decided to withdraw its proposed indefinite petrol pump bandh in Greater Guwahati from September 7.

    Following the announcement to close the petrol pumps, an emergent meeting was called by the district administration of Kamrup Metro on Saturday with BPCL, IOCL, HPCL and NEIPDA (GGU).

    Rajib Goswami, the president of NEIPDA (GGU) said in a statement, “ In the meeting, BPCL has assured the district administration and us that they will resume supply of MS and HSD immediately as demanded by our Association and they have extended the time to sign the Agreement till December 2020, which was our one-point demand. Therefore, after signing the minutes, we have decided to withdraw our indefinite petrol pump bandh and accordingly, it has been withdrawn immediately.”

    The Greater Guwahati unit of NEIPDA on Friday announced to close the petrol pumps in protest against harassment on dealers by oil companies. The Association earlier said the petrol pumps would remain closed from 5 AM of September 7.
