However, fresh gas connection will be provided to the industrial zones, says the state minister

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Wednesday categorically said that no household gas connection will be provided in the future.

He made the announcement while responding to a supplementary question in parliament, reports UNB.

“MPs repeatedly question me about the issue. I’m clearly saying that no gas connection will be provided to any house from now on,” he said.

The state minister added that fresh gas connection will be provided to the industrial zones and the pipelines were being installed to ensure uninterrupted gas supply to the industrial zones.

Responding to queries from lawmakers during Wednesday’s session, he said uninterrupted power supply would be ensured across the country during the Ramadan.

“We are trying to not only ensure uninterrupted electricity supply during the Tarabih prayers in Ramadan, but also ensure it round the clock in the holy month,” he said.

The government is also trying to ensure uninterrupted gas supply during the Ramadan, Nasrul added.

Replying to a starred question, he said the government has also taken various initiatives to prevent misuse of electricity.

The initiatives include encouraging the people not to use air-conditioning (AC) units, electric iron and water pump and avoid lighting at shops, shopping malls, residential houses and commercial buildings, awareness campaigns, observance of the National Power Week and organizing power fair.
