Fuel pump operators across Pakistan are to hold a nationwide strike on July 22 in a bid to secure larger margins amid an inflation crisis, the Pakistan Petroleum Dealers Association said on Thursday.

“We will shut down all petrol pumps across Pakistan on July 22, 6 p.m.,” said the association, which says it has more than 10,000 members.
