Consumers Association of Bangladesh (CAB) has raised questions about the actual water production capacity of Chittagong Wasa.

The organization's Chittagong chapter raised the credibility of Wasa’s capacity by issuing a press statement on Tuesday.

Chittagong Wasa claims its production capacity is 35 to 40 crore litre of water per day. 

The claim has no scientific base, the statement said, as there is no digital metre to measure the production at the Sheikh Hasina and Madunaghat Water Treatment Plants and pump house. 

Lack of an actual database at Chittagong Wasa raises credibility of its daily capacity volume. 

There is a huge mismatch while calculating the cost of actual water production since there is no metre in production and supply, the press statement further said.  

The consumers' rights body also demanded replacing Chittagong Wasa’s incumbent managing director, Engineer AKM Fazlullah, who has been serving for the last one decade on contractual basis.    

The statement also read although Engineer Fazlullah has been serving for the last ten years, he has failed to deliver services despite receiving a whopping Tk13,000 crore budget allocation during the government’s previous tenure. 

The statement also levelled a number of allegations against Chittagong Wasa officials, blaming them for not paying attention to water crises across the city and keeping themselves busy with recreational programs, often funded by contractors.

The press statement was signed by CAB's central vice president SM Nazer Hossain, Chittagong divisional secretary Kazi Iqbal Bahar, city president Jesmine Sulatan and secretary Ajay Mitra.
