Power restored at Khaleda Zia’s house
Bangladesh Government on Sunday restored the power supply to the office-cum-residence of Opposition leader Khaleda Zia, nearly a day after it was snapped in a bid to force her to call off her 72-hour nation-wide strike.
The electricity line to Zia’s office-cum-residence at Gulshan where she has been confined since she launched a nation-wide transport blockade early January, was restored late last night after some 20 hours, but the Internet, cable television and phone connections are still down, an aide of the former Premier told media.
Authorities on Saturday cut off the power supply, cable and Internet connections to Zia’s office-cum-residence from where she has been spearheading a nationwide blockade of roads, railways and waterways, triggering deadly unrest that has claimed at least 45 lives so far.
