Reach electricity to every house: Speaker

News Report Speaker of the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury Tuesday said the incumbent government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is committed to reaching electricity to every house across the country. "Country power generation capacity has increased to 20,000MW from only 3,500MW in 2009 due mainly to undertaking and implementation of time-befitting plans and programmes," she said when Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) chairman Monowar Islam called on her at her JS office here. BERC members Rahman Murshed, Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan, Md Abdul Aziz Khan, Md Mizanur Rahman and BERC secretary Rafiqul Islam were present, a press release said. BERC chairman and members handed over a copy of BERC's annual report 2017-18 to the Speaker. Dr Chaudhury praised the BERC for its activities and asked them to be more sincere in their activities to achieve satisfaction of power consumers. BERC chairman apprised the JS speaker of the future plans and activities. (Inputs taken from BSS)
