    Nasrul: Govt trying to resolve electricity crisis in 2 weeks

    June 5, 2023 - Dhaka Tribune


      Mentioning that Bangladesh is facing an electricity crisis due to coal, gas, and oil shortages, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid has said that the government is hoping to emerge from this situation within the next 10-15 days.

      'Efforts are being made to bring coal to the Payra power plant as quickly as possible,' the state minister assured while briefing journalists at the secretariat on Sunday.

      Asserting that no scheduled load-shedding would be implemented at this time, Nasrul Hamid acknowledged that there were power cuts in some areas, with frequency increasing over the past several days.

      'The country is experiencing load-shedding of around 2,500 megawatts. Some power plants are operating with only half of their fuel capacity due to fuel shortage,' he said.

      'The government has been trying to resolve these issues for the last two months; however, for various reasons, including financial, we could not solve the problems,' said the state minister.

      'The electricity situation has become unbearable and the government is aware. We hope to overcome this challenge soon,' he added.
