Residents of different areas of the capital like Nowreen are spending their days in such gas crisis. No gas most of the day. They have to cook when the gas comes late at night. However, whether there is a fire in the gas stove or not, cooking or not, the fixed gas bill has to be paid at the end of the month. Gas-scarce people like Noreen are cooking in alternative ways using wood or electric stoves, rice cookers, stoves or gas cylinders. They have to pay additional expenses.
On Thursday, talking to the residents of various areas including Jatrabari, Uttara, Bashundhara residential areas of the capital, anger was found. They have one thing, they are not getting gas, but they have to pay the gas bill. Gas woes have been added to the gassing situation in the rise in the prices of daily commodities. In winter, even if you pay the extra price of electricity, the suffering is not felt, how much this suffering will increase in summer, everyone was shocked.
