Shillong, Sep 6 (PTI) Petrol pump workers in the North-East have decided to go on a 72-hour strike from Tuesday to protest the non-settlement of their six-point charter of demands.

Informing this, Hynniewtrep Petroleum Workers Union president Alester N Diengdoh today said the strike would start from 5 am on Tuesday throughout the North-East.
