Shri Modi also shed light on how electrification of over 18000 villages has been taken up by the Government in mission mode. “Even after about 70 years of independence, over 18000 villages across India did not have electricity. We are committed to power all those villages in 1000 days and have taken the work of electrifying villages in mission mode. We want our villages to shift from darkness to light”, he added.
The Prime Minister opined that the country was moving at faster than ever rate towards progress and the world too recognised that. “Be it any rating agency in the world, everyone is of the same opinion that India is the bright spot in the entire world and the country is fastest growing”, he added.
