Sustainable electricity connection to every household main challenge

Terming sustainable electricity connection to every household as the main challenge, Nasrul Hamid, the State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources on Tuesday said he aspires to keep his portfolio at the forefront of Sheikh Hasina’s mantra of nationwide development.

He, who for the second time in a row becomes the State Minister of this important arm of the government, was given a reception by the officials from the Power Division and different power generation and distribution companies at Bidyut Bhaban in the capital.

It was Nasrul’s first official day as the State Minister. He started the day by visiting and placing wrath at the portrait of Bangbandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Dhanmondi 32 and the National Monument in Savar.

Addressing the officials present at Bidyut Bhaban, Nasrul said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has made me the State Minister of again here as she is happy with works we have done in the past five years. We have been able to make electricity available at every corners of the country. Now our challenge is to make it available in every household,” he said.

He said, electricity and sustainable energy supply are the main driving force behind an economy. “We have been able to come back in power because we had provided due importance in electricity generation in sourcing energy,” he said.

Nasrul asked all the officials related with his ministry to keep up the good work. “We were number one ministry in the last government and we want to stay in the same position this time as well.”

Power Division Secretary Dr Ahmed Kaikaus said Bangladesh recently has been ranked as the 41st largest economies in the world, up from the 43rd position since the last year. “According to the World Economic Forum, it is well on track to become the 24th largest economy by 2033. If the country aspires to become so, there will be a huge need for development in the power sector,” said Kaikaus.

Kaikaus said under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, the country is in the right track of development. “Our ministry, under the guidance of Nasrul Hamid is also in the right track,” he said.
