"We shall work in a single shift, 9-5, at least till the government implements its own commitment regarding our commission hikes, keeping in view the huge inputs cost," Federation of All Maharashtra Petrol Dealers Association (FAMPEDA) president A.S. Dikshit told IANS.
The agitation, launched Monday morning, saw the participation of nearly 80 percent of the 290 petrol pumps in the city, and almost complete response of the 3,700 petrol pumps elsewhere in the state, he said.
"This is better than going on a total strike and making the state totally fuel-starved. Unless the government adheres to its commitment of giving us increased commission, we shall run in a single shift," Dikshit declared.
