    Bangladesh eyes 2,000MW more by 2018

    Bangladesh is negotiating with India to get at least 2,000 megawatts more electricity by 2018. The country is currently importing around 500MW of power through Bheramara from Bahrampur of West Bengal. It is also set to get 100MW this year from the Palatana power plant in northeastern Indian state of Tripura. Bangladesh had allowed India free transit and transshipment facilities to build the Palatana plant. Of its targeted 2,000MW, Bangladesh hopes to get at least 1,500MW -- half of Dhaka's demand -- from Rangia Raota of Assam and 500MW...

Four top mobile phone operators may not take part in the forthcoming spectrum auction as some of the key issues that the government promised to sort out during the last bidding remain unresolved. In a joint letter, Grameenphone, Banglalink, Robi and Airtel drew Finance Minister AMA Muhith's attention to their “investors' inability to recommend participation” in the auction for 1,800 MHz and 2,100 MHz bands, due to be held on April 30. The auction gives operators an opportunity to acquire more bandwidth, needed to maintain service quality to their fast expanding customer base. Furthermore, the 1,800MHz spectrum is the international standard band for the fourth-generation wireless broadband service that provides fast internet. But in Bangladesh,...

     Op-ed

A front page report in this newspaper on Friday has very clearly brought out the trauma that the country has suffered in the last two months as a consequence of the political programmes called by the BNP. Our fears are compounded by BNP's threat of even tougher programmes should the government not accede to their demands by 8 March. We wonder what tougher programmes the BNP can conjure up in the future. As of now 83 people have died due to violence of which 66 were general people not directly connected with politics or political parties. Can we really claim to be civilised when 53 of us die in arson attacks carried...
