August 9 is being celebrated as the National Energy Security Day. The day is actually celebrated to commemorate the great contribution of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for energy security of Bangladesh and presenting his deeds to the present generation. 2021 is the Golden Jubilee year of Bangladesh’s independence. The main program of the government in ‘Mujib Year’ is ensuring access of “power to all”. Some 94% of the population is now under grid and non-grid power supply coverage. Experts hope that showing due respect to Bangabandhu pursued policy of achieving self-sustaining energy and power sector relying on fuel resources, the government would adopt appropriate plans. Let that be the vision and mission of the government in the ‘Mujib Year’. Not the imported fuel dependency, but through emphasizing exploration and exploitation of own fuel and making own fuel as backbone to national economy, Bangabandhu’s dream of Sonar Bangla can be materialized. Own fuel exploration and use will take nation one step forward. Criticism of so called self-declared patriots must not be taken on board.
