Gas price hike an ‘anti-people’ decision: Fakhrul

Dhaka, Jan 18: BNP strongly condemned and protested the decision to increase the price of gas terming it as anti-people.

The party says that after power, the government has again announced the gas price hike. Now, the price of gas has increased by almost 3 (three) times which is the manifestation of the anti-people character of the government. The government has increased the price of gas after electricity, pushing the poor people into endless misery.

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said this in a statement sent to the media on Wednesday.

According to the statement, he said people are already going through extreme hardship due to anti-people government’s corruption, looting, mismanagement and wrong policies. Meanwhile, after the increase in electricity price four days ago, the price of every commodity, electricity and food will once again rise abnormally due to 2 to 3 times increase in gas price in large, medium, small cottage industry, power plant and even hotel restaurant sector. A unilateral hike in gas prices, ignoring traders’ pleas not to raise gas prices, will affect everything.

The gas crisis is already at its peak, there is no uninterrupted supply of gas to the factories and even the houses, the stoves in the houses are not lit due to the gas shortage, the production of the factories is also continuously decreasing. In such an intolerable situation, the increase in gas prices will put industries at risk, increasing the cost of living of the people.

He said the government is imposing one after another ‘anti-people’ decision on the people as they are not elected. The illegal government hiked gas prices to cut people’s pockets and favor a group. The country’s economy has collapsed due to government misrule, corruption and money laundering. Due to the dollar crisis, LCs cannot be opened, there is extreme instability and frustration in business.
