The government has ordered authorities to ensure that shopping malls, stores and kitchen markets are closed by 8:00pm every night– to save electricity amid rising energy prices worldwide following the Russia-Ukraine war.

The Prime Minister's Office in a letter dated June 17, 2022 announced the order on PM Sheikh Hasina's instructions to several ministries, departments and local authorities, stating that the Bangladesh Labour Act already stipulates the closure of shops at 8:00pm.

The Prime Minister's Office has sent a letter to the concerned to ensure proper implementation of this directive.

Talking to The Daily Star, Helal Uddin, president of Bangladesh Dokan Malik Samity that represents shops and stores across the country, said the government didn't discuss with them while taking decision on such an important issue.

"Although there is a provision under the existing law that people will work from 10:00am to 8:00pm, we never followed it due to reasonable grounds," he said.

Helal also said, "As the government has taken this decision to save power following soaring price of oil across the globe due to Russia-Ukraine war, we have no alternative but to abide by the decision."

lol. Forex reserves are dwindling. If you take out $7 billion of their inflated forex reserves, their reserves are already down at $35 billion, covers a max of 4 months imports. Haseena is already seeing Srilanka like situation coming soon.

This, in the country with one of the poorest vehicle density. So much for the machismo lungis display on this forum.
