Awami League presidium member and Minister for Housing and Public Works Engineer Mosharraf Hossain today said Bangladesh has attained self-sufficiency in food under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and it would soon be a self-sufficient country in power generation also.
Even in 2010, the uninterrupted power supply across the country was merely a dream. Living in darkness in power failures became part of everyday life for anyone whether living in urban or rural area. People used to memorize the schedule of power load shedding even few years back. But in seven years span of time, the country's power generation shot up to almost five times and the word load shedding became a forgotten one in the society.
