  • Their remarks contradict electricity situation

Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Sunday said the country’s power sector had plunged into a deep crisis.

Talking to reporters at BNP’s Naya Paltan office Rizvi said Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader’s recent remarks on the power situation contradict what Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said.

The BNP leader said Quader claimed that 100% people of the country are getting electricity supply while his prime minister a few days ago stated that load-shedding in small scale should remain in the country.

He said people of the country are suffering from load-shedding morning to evening whereas the temperature still remains at tolerable level.

Rizvi denounced Quader’s another statement that BNP is pleading with its foreign master by ignoring the people of the country.

He alleged that the Awami League general secretary is perhaps suffering from amnesia as he had forgotten the 2014 election when India’s then-foreign minister Sujata Singh visited Bangladesh to show their support to Awami League and manage HM Ershad to join the polls.

It is a clear sign of intervention in a sovereign country, he added.

BNP Vice Chairman Ahmed Azam Khan, Adviser to Chairperson Zainul Abdeen Farooq, Zainal Abedin (VP Zainal), Organizational Secretary Advocate Abdus Salam Azad, Assistant Office Secretary Munir Hossain, Assistant Economic Secretary Mahmudur Rahman Sumon, were present in the press briefing.
