Dhaka, Feb 16 (UNB) – Different areas of Dhaka city, including Mirpur, Mohammadpur, Kalabagan, Shyamoli, Agargaon and some adjacent areas like Dhamrai, Ashulia, Aminbazar, Savar and Manikganj have been experiencing disruption in gas supply since Friday night due to a technical glitch.
According to officials at Titag Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Ltd, a technical fault in the valve of the transmission station of Gas Transmission Company Ltd (GTCL) at Ashulia has led to this sudden disruption in gas supply.
Titas Gas officials said the gas supply in those areas remained suspended.
Titas Gas is responsible for gas distribution in Dhaka city, Savar and Manikganj while GTCL is responsible for gas transmission across the country.
Titas Gas Manager Enamul Haque said the GTCL has been working to fix the problem by replacing the valve at the station, which is expected to be completed by Sunday morning.
Titas Gas deputy general manager Anisur Rahman said they do not have any alternative arrangement to improve the gas supply situation in the areas where the supply remained stopped.
‘So, the consumers in the supply-affected areas should have patience until the technical glitch is fixed,” he told UNB.
