Earlier in the week, Tej Pratap Yadav's petrol pump licence was terminated after a Patna court vacated the interim stay on execution of a Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) order.
Media reports said that Tej Pratap challenged the oil firm order in the court, which granted an ex-parte temporary injunction, restraining the BPCL from causing obstruction to the plaintiff till he appears and files his say to application for temporary injunction.
