Farhad Hossain, State Minister for Public Administration, stated on Saturday that the electricity situation would return to normal by Tuesday, putting an end to load-shedding.

“There will be no further load-shedding after Tuesday, June 13.” “Coal imports have already begun, and we expect a rapid reduction in load shedding,” he said.

Farhad Hossain delivered these remarks on Saturday afternoon at a meeting in Meherpur’s Shalika village. Various development projects in the area were also visited by the state minister.

The state minister blamed the coal crisis on a rise in global oil costs as well as the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
