Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader urged countrymen to accept the price hike of electricity saying price is being raised for the benefit of the people and this problem will not lasting long.

He said this while addressing as a chief guest at Milad Mahfil on the occasion of Shaheed Selim-Delwar Day at Hatirpul area in the capital today.

The minister said that there is no scarcity of water and electricity in Dhaka City. About 96 percent people in the country are enjoying electricity and 100 percent of the electricity will be ensured in Mujib Year. Electricity price is being raised for the benefit of people. There may be problems for some time but you should accept the contemporary price hike. This will not make you power deficient.

In the context of dengue, he said people had a lot of problems last year due to mosquitoes. We are preparing for dengue mosquito-killing from now on as per Prime Minister's direction. Sheikh Hasina has started a purification campaign against the bad guys. There is no place for bad people in this country. The Prime Minister has brought her own party men under the trail. Those involved in the drug trade, drug addicts, brokers and terrorist activities will not be exempted.

The two mayors of Dhaka are organizing mass hearings to listen to problems of the people, said Obaidul Quader. 

Regarding Shaheed Selim-Delwar Day, the general secretary said that the country was not suddenly released from the dictator. Our freedom has been achieved in exchange for bloody struggles. However, we are forgetting the martyr Selim - Delwar Day. I did not see anyone observe these days. This day should be celebrated to honor the spirit of the War of Liberation and inspire the new generation.
