DHAKA, MAR 31: Already hit hard by frequent hartal and work stoppages, productions in mills and factories in Dhaka and its adjoining areas are being hampered seriously due to shortage of power and energy, especially by dwindling gas supply situation. According to industry sources, a good number of industries in Narayanganj, Gazipur, Savar, Manikganj and Mirzapur have been suffering seriously due to irregular supply and low gas pressure in pipelines.
It is causing the entrepreneurs huge economic losses every month.
The stringent supply situation has greatly affected productions in mills and industries, particularly the textile sector.
