"We received their written assurance around midnight that the matter of enhanced commission and related issues was on the verge of being finalized. They also requested us to withdraw our agitation as it was inconveniencing millions of people," Federation of All Maharashtra Petrol Dealers Association (FAMPEDA) president A.S. Dikshit told IANS.
Accordingly, Tuesday morning, all 3,700 petrol and diesel stations across the state and another 290 in Mumbai returned to normal three shift operations, Dikshit said.
Since midnight of Sunday-Monday, all the petrol stations in the state resorted to a single shift agitation, vending petrol and diesel only between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., throwing normal life out of gear.
The impact of the unprecedented agitation was seen in the form of long snaky queues of vehicles and angry drivers during the morning and evening peak hours Monday at most petrol pumps in the city and suburbs.
