 Tuesday's session of the Jatiya Sangsad was adjourned hurriedly within an hour of its beginning due to power disruption in the Sangsad Bhaban.

The day's business began at 5:10pm with Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair, but it was forced to adjourn the business after running the House for merely an hour with power support from a generator.

Deputy Speaker Fazle Rabbi Miah, who was in the chair at that time, suspended the remaining proceedings of the day at 6.15pm.

The parliament session will resume at 5pm on Wednesday.

Later, the Deputy Speaker told the media that the day's business was adjourned due to power disruption.

He said Meghnaghat Power Plant supplies electricity to the Parliament Bhaban and the power supply stopped due to technical problems in the power plant.

"We've adjourned the day's business after running the session with power supply from its generator for an hour," he said.unb
