Promise to electrify every village within 1000 days fulfilled: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused the previous Congress-led UPA government of leaving a large number of villages un-electrified despite remaining in power most of the time after Independence. 

He was interacting with the beneficiaries of Deendayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana and Saubhagya Yojana through video conferencing. 

Mr Modi said it was unfortunate that over 18,000 villages in the country were not electrified in the last 70 years. 

The Prime Minister said 28th of April this year was a historic day for India's development story as Leisang village of Manipur became the last village in the country to be connected to a power grid.

Mr Modi said on the 15th August, 2015, he had made a promise to electrify every village in 1000 days. He said under Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhayay Gram Jyoti Yojana government strived to reach all dark corners of India.
