At a time when everyone is trying to recover from the Corona epidemic, the FBCCI, the apex body of traders, has called the move to increase electricity and gas prices suicidal. The group’s leaders say now is not the time to raise electricity and gas prices. This initiative has been taken to bring the government into disarray.
At a press conference held at the FBCCI office in the capital Motijheel on Saturday, the leaders of the organization further said that the decision on whether the price of gas and electricity will go up has to come politically. Not from bureaucrats.
FBCCI President Jasim Uddin presented the keynote address at a press conference on the proposed hike in electricity and gas prices. Among others, BTMEA President Mohammad Ali Khokon, BGMEA Co-President Shahidullah Azim and others spoke.
