Karachi (Web Desk): The All Pakistan Oil Tankers Association (APOTA) has gone on a strike across the country on Monday against collecting double toll tax and abusive behavior of traffic police.

According to APOTA representatives, the strike is to protest against the safety regulations of Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) and penalties imposed by Motorway police.

“OGRA and Motorway police are treating them unfairly making the situation worse, so it is hard for them to continue work in such atmosphere,” the APOTA representatives said.

The members of the tanker association asked the government to solve their demands otherwise oil supply to fuel stations will be halted in protest for an indefinite period.

If the Oil Tankers Association go on a strike , petrol shortage is feared across the country.
