People’s lives are miserable due to extreme and scorching heat. The frequent load shedding exacerbates the heat, making it even more unbearable. Office air conditioning and fans are not functioning.

Meanwhile, employees are required to stay in their shirt, pants, shoes, and official attire for more than 8 hours, which is challenging for many to endure.

Unable to tolerate this discomfort, an incident occurred where employees applied to the office authorities for permission to wear a lungi to work.

Naushad Ansari, a computer operator at the insurance company’s Syedpur office in Nilphamari, submitted a written request to the chief executive officer on Thursday (June 8).

In his application, he mentioned that the entire country is engulfed in intense heat. Syedpur is experiencing a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius. The unbearable heat, coupled with the lack of rain and frequent power outages, has made it difficult to work continuously in pants. It has led to itching in various parts of the body.
