Sharmin is a resident of Zakir Hossain Road in Mohammadpur. There was no gas in his house since Tuesday morning. In the evening the gas pressure in the stove was very low. Sharmin thought the gas supply would be fine on Wednesday morning. But he could not cook even in the morning due to low gas pressure. As a result, the rest of the family members including the children are suffering.
Gas supply has been disrupted in Dhanmondi, Mohammadpur, Adabar, Kalyanpur, Mirpur 1, Green Road and Kalabagan areas since yesterday morning. Gas supply was not normal in many areas even on Wednesday. A large part of the capital does not have gas yet. As much gas is coming, it is not possible to cook with it. Titus says he may still be suffering from gas all day. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Gas supply was cut off in the Aminbazar area of Savar yesterday morning as the pipeline was damaged. Leaks or holes are then detected in the 12-inch pipeline. So it was shut down and gas was supplied to the 18-inch pipeline at around 7.30 pm. But a large part of the capital is not getting gas yet. You can’t cook with what you get.

The three officials in charge of Titus said it was becoming difficult to repair the hole. The Roads and Highways (RHD) Department in the Salehpur Bridge area 500 meters in front of Aminbazar has drilled sand and drilled a hole in the Titas pipeline. Now the water is coming as soon as you go to remove the sand with the excavator. So it’s not going to work. After trying more than once yesterday, it could not be done. There is a risk of a major accident if you work underwater in this way.
At around 10 am today, the official in charge of Titas told Prothom Alo on condition of anonymity that people call here to complain when they do not get gas at home. Complaints of not getting gas from different areas of the capital have been coming for two days.
Talking to top officials of gas suppliers, it was learned that the suffering of the people of the capital will increase. Leakage in the pipeline in Dhaka on one side, supply cut off on the other. All in all, Titus is in danger. They can’t show any hope.
Titas Gas Distribution Company Managing Director Ali Iqbal. Nurullah told Prothom Alo in the morning that work is going on with the problem of Aminbazar. But the supply for that pipeline should not be a problem. Now the problem is, they are not getting gas supply through Demra, Jatrabari point.
Gas Transmission Company Limited (GTCL) supplies gas to Titas in the pipeline. The managing director of the organization. Atiquzzaman told Prothom Alo that Summit had cut off liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply due to technical faults. So the supply of 35 crore cubic feet has suddenly decreased in a day. The Summit may resume on March 26.
