Bangladesh: Air-Conditioners Banned During Evening To Tackle Energy Shortage

Tacitaeterno at In The Middle Of Nowhere informs that the Bangladesh government has imposed restrictions on the usage of air conditioners during evening to control the stifling electricity shortage in the capital.

    A very good decision. Bangladeshis should strengthen their govt in this decision. For the first time I heard that the rich of a country are banned instead of the poor. Other nations of the sub-continent should follow the govt of Bangladesh specially in this particular decision. Specially, Pakistan’s power ministry if follow can resolve her power shortage.

    Good Decision. And also agree with JAmshad.
