Patiala, January 2

DC Sakshi Sawhney said there was no need for panic buying of fuel as requisite stock of fuel was available in the district.

The strike by truckers against the new hit-and-run provision has hit trade in the district and triggered panic purchase of fuel. Many fuel stations of the district ran dry and at a few locations, scuffles were also witnessed between the fuel staff and commuters.

A Patiala Truck Union delegation led by its chief Jasdeep Singh Shergil met DC Sawhney and handed over a memorandum to her, demanding the revocation of stricter motor vehicle laws. Later, the union took out a protest march across the city.
