FROM JATIYA SANGSHAD: State minister for Power Division and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Monday said there was a scarcity of gas distribution compare to demand across the country.
The state minister came up with the assertion while addressing parliament in response to a question from lawmaker MA Hannan.
“The amount of scarcity is 500 cft per day,” he added.
He also said: “Construction and extension of new lines are kept stopped due to this shortage.”
