State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid has said two engineers of the Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) will be suspended over the recent national grid failure.
At least 90% power supply was restored across Bangladesh after nearly seven hours of blackout following the national power grid failure today (October 4, 2022).
Power supply was restored in some parts of Dhaka city under Maniknagar and Hasnabad grid substations and also a good number of districts under Sylhet, Chattogram and Mymensingh at 7pm. But supply could not be restored in the areas under Ulon grid substations in Dhaka.
Patients in several hospitals in Dhaka and Chattogram cities have been suffering as many parts of the country have been experiencing power outage since this afternoon.
