Oil tankers threaten strike
ISLAMABAD: The All Pakistan Oil Tankers Owners Association (APOOA) has extended a charter of demand to the government and threatened an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.
A delegation of the association, led by Mir Muhammad Yousif Shahwani, association’s president, met Syed Mushahid Hussain, Pakistan Muslim League (PML) general secretary and provided him with a charter of 20 demands. At a news conference with delegation members, Mushahid said the government was ready to consider the genuine demands of oil tanker owners. He said that he had urged the association to clarify their proposals instead of providing 20 demands. He said he had arranged a meeting of the association officials with Sindh Chief Minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim on Wednesday (today), who would announce the release of arrested association members. staff report
