Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (Bapa) and Bangladesh Environment Network (Ben) demanded recently that the government scrap its deal with India's Adani Group to import electricity.


In a joint statement, the green organizations said importing electricity spending foreign currency will be "illogical", noting that, nearly half of the country's power production capacity currently remains unused.


They said the conditions set for purchasing electricity from the Adani Group are "adverse" for Bangladesh and blamed the government's present "power development plan" for this.


The organizations said as per media reports Bangladesh is likely to start importing electricity from Adani's 1,600MW coal-based power plant in India's Jharkhand this week.
