Power sector is playing a vital role in implementing the 'My Village-My City' program to fulfil the pledges of the prime minister, he says 

The number of consumers under the Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board (BREB) in the country’s rural areas has reached 31.8 million, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid said on Tuesday. 

He also urged the power officials to improve their services to satisfy consumers.

“Achieving customer satisfaction should be our main target now. You have to provide improved services to the doorsteps of the consumers,” he said while addressing a webinar organized by the BREB to observe the National Mourning Day 2021.

The virtual seminar, with BREB Chairman Maj Gen (retd) Moin Uddin in the chair, was addressed by Power Secretary Habibur Rahman and Power Cell Director General Mohammad Hossain.

Hamid said the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had taken various steps to provide electrification services to the rural areas considering the economic development of the rural people.  

“Erasing the difference between the urban and rural areas was the main goal of Bangabandhu,” he said, adding that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working to achieve the goal through expanding modern amenities to the villages.

The state minister said the power sector has been playing a vital role in implementing the “My Village-My City” program to fulfil the pledges of the prime minister.    

He also directed the BREB officials to use improved technologies in rural electrification as well as to encourage people to use energy-efficient appliances for ensuring economic consumption of power.
