Minister of State for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid put the bill to vote on Sunday and it was later passed.

There was a minor parliamentary drama ahead of the bill’s ratification as Gono Forum leader MP Mokobir Khan walked out of the house in protest against the government’s move of not considering his proposal regarding the bill.

When the bill was introduced earlier this month, Mokobir proposed to seek public opinion before turning the bill into law.

“This bill is being passed against the interests of the people. My proposal to seek public opinion was not considered. I am withdrawing my proposal and going on a walkout to protest against this bill.
