Develop Phulbari coal mine to resolve power crisis

yesterday urged the government to move to develop the Phulbari coal mine without any further delay.

They saw the huge coal reserve at the Phulbari coal mine as the only option now to deal with future energy crisis, particularly in power generation.

"We can easily produce 3,500MW of electricity from the coal to be extracted from the Phulbari mine,' said Rangpur Chamber President Mostafa Azad Chowdhury, adding that as the country's gas reserve is depleting fast, coal is becoming the only option for power generation.
