BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said, a few days ago the MP-ministers of this government said that we have produced such electricity, we now have to sell the electricity by ferries. But, what we can see now is that there is no electricity for 10 to 12 hours in rural areas and even in Dhaka city. The entire country has turned into a gas chamber due to severe drought due to power shortage.
