Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam said that the government has not yet taken any decision regarding the increase in the price of fuel in the country.  A tube of the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman tunnel under construction under the Karnaphuli river will be opened in November, Cabinet Secretary Khandkar Anwarul Islam said.  Besides, he expressed hope that the second tube of the tunnel will be opened next December.

Cabinet Secretary Khandkar Anwarul Islam said these things to reporters after an exchange meeting with Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police of Chattogram Division on Friday morning.

 He said that the current situation of the country, law and order, development activities and the involvement of common people with the administration were discussed in the meeting.  BPC Chairman ABM Azad was present at this time.

 Khandaker Anwarul Islam said that if the price falls in the world market, the price falls in Europe and America.  If it increases again, the price increases.  But we don't have this practice in our country.  The government has not yet announced a hike in fuel prices. 

 But if the situation is like that then the government may think what can be done.  But the price has not been increased yet.  After the Second World War, supply channels were not closed like this in the world.

 Naturally there will be an effect on everyone.  We all have to deal with this together.  I have discussed these issues today.

  Karnaphuli tunnel will be opened in November and it will be identified as a model of Bangladesh.  The tunnel work has been implemented very easily.  Such a big project;  The implementation on schedule is a big success for the country.  The tunnel will be identified as a model for Bangladesh.

  He said, today's meeting discussed how to control the value of the dollar.  We are dealing with the dollar issue.  Due to the global situation, there may be some obstacles.  The government is taking measures to keep the value of the dollar under control.  We are all trying to solve these problems together.
