Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Sunday (3 March) said that the country’s power sector had plunged into a deep crisis.

Talking to the reporters at BNP’s Nayapalton 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 a hundred percent people of the country are getting electricity supply while his PM 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 a tolerable level.

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

He alleged that the AL 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 AL and manage HM Earshad 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
