Punjab petrol pumps shut: Strike against high fuel tax, amid Covid pandemic

Petrol pumps in Punjab staged a strike on July 29, 2020.

Petrol prices in Punjab have reportedly reached Rs 79.77 per litre, while diesel costs Rs 73.32 per litre.

In India's financial capital, petrol reportedly costs Rs 87.19 per litre.
