Title:Dhaka stifles with load shedding

Dhaka, Bangladesh. June 19, 2012 [DrikNEWS] – Dhaka’s answer to the growing shortage of power is load shedding of electricity. This is causing power outages that are crippling the city. Many posh apartment blocks and business establishments switch to generator power and is minimally affected by the disruption in service. The load shedding can total up to five hours or more in a day.  Disillusioned customers pay more for electricity but do not receive a better service. Instead many of Dhaka’s millions of dwellers languish as the stifling hot summer drains their energy.
