Dhaka: All major cities, including the capital of Bangladesh, were suddenly plunged into darkness.
According to international news agencies, all the power plants tripped due to the reduction in power generation capacity due to the increasing prices of petroleum products in Bangladesh, which left 14 million people without electricity.
Almost all major cities including the capital of Bangladesh, which is facing a total power shortage of 1,500 megawatts, were plunged into darkness while many areas are already experiencing 15-20 hours of load shedding.
The government spokesman says that the reason for the power breakdown could be a fault in the national power grid, while a fault also occurred in the transmission line of the eastern part of the country. Earlier in Bangladesh schools and government offices had 3 days off per week and reduced working hours to meet the power shortage.
