“I call these 4 million three wheelers as the Tesla of Bangla. They are using their creativity to build these. We are not stopping them,” he said so with reference to American electric carmaker Tesla.


The state minister said this in Parliament while responding to a supplementary question of the ruling party MP elected from Narayanganj Shamim Osman.


“It may have mechanical faults. The return is much higher compared to the electricity that they are using. About 40 lakh rickshaw-pullers, who are using electricity, are earning,” he said.


He said the government is trying to move from lead batteries to lithium batteries.


“We are working on a project regarding this matter. We will supply them with lithium batteries and take away the lead batteries,” he said.
