It was unfortunate that even after 70 years of independence, over 18,000 villages remained in dark: PM Modi
In 2005, the UPA Govt promised to electrify every village by 2009. The then President of the ruling party went a step ahead & spoke about bringing electricity to every home. None of that happened: PM
From the ramparts of the Red Fort I had announced that every village will be electrified. We walked the talk and went to every village: PM
About 14,500 villages out of the 18,000 that had not been electrified, were in Eastern India. We have changed that: PM Modi

Interacting with beneficiaries of rural electrification, PM Modi said it was unfortunate that even after 70 years of independence, 18,000 villages lacked electricity. He attacked the previous UPA government for not being able to fulfill its promise of power for all by 2009. He mentioned how the NDA Government, not only focussed on electrification but also reformed the distribution systems across the country.
