At least 20 people were injured in a clash between police and the members of National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Ports as they move to siege the Ministry of Energy in Dhaka.

The committee members locked into a clash with police on Sunday as the law enforcers obstructed them to besiege the Ministry of Energy.

Police charged baton and fired tear gas cell on the members as a team led by its convener Sheikh Mohammad Shahidullah they marched towards the ministry.

In retaliation, the activists also threw brick chips on police triggering a clash that left at least 20 people injured.

Member secretary of the committee Annu Muhammad said the committee will enforce tougher movement if the government does not withdraw the decision of increasing power price. The government is increasing the power tariff in order to protect the interest of a vested quarter. We will stop paying the electricity bills if the government does not change its decision. The government has to increase the power generation capacity by setting up gas power plants and repairing state-run power plants and stopping quick rental system.

Annu Muhammad said, “We have earlier warned the government against quick rental system and gave an alternative way to overcome the situation. But, the government did not listen to us and made trap for countrymen.”

On the other hand, Ganotantrik Bam Morcha, a platform of left-leaning parties, besieged Bangladesh Power Development Board on September 25 protesting the same issue.
