Thousands of jobless people an Keshabpur of Jashore are struggling with their electricity bills amid this corona crisis. It has been reported that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has already announced that 3 months electricity bill can be paid without delay fee in this corona situation.

But the Keshabpur zonal office under Jashore Palli Bidyut Samiti-2 made the appointment in Keshabpur on May 5 saying that the electricity bill can be paid without delay fee by May 16.  

Palli Bidyut is not taking electricity bill from any bank except Keshabpur Zonal Office. As a result, thousands of customers of Keshabpur Upazila are in trouble with their electricity bills. Even though Palli Bidyut has taken electricity bill at Keshabpur zonal office, customers are being harassed by standing in line for a long time due to lack of manpower. 

In this regard, the aggrieved customers of Palli Bidyut Keshabpur zonal office have demanded an increase in manpower in the electricity bill collection section and all the banks in Keshabpur upazila to receive electricity bills.
