New Delhi: The Rajasthan Petrol Dealers Association has declared a 48-hour strike on Sunday, commencing from 6 am, under the banner of 'No Purchase No Sale'. Sandeep Bageria, the Treasurer of the association, cited the alarming surge in fuel prices and the unfulfilled promises of price reduction by the government as the primary reasons behind the protest.

"Despite promises by the BJP government to alleviate the burden of soaring fuel costs, no tangible measures have been taken," Bageria stated.
