Tanker strike off

Calcutta, Jan. 30: The tanker strike has been called off but fuel supply is not expected to return to normal before Wednesday evening.

Tanker operators decided to “defer” the strike on a request from transport minister Subhas Chakraborty.

“Union petroleum minister Murli Deora told me that he would be back from Libya in 10 days and reques-ted that the strike be deferred till his return, when he will take up the issue,” an official said.
