The central government has claimed that now electricity has reached all the villages of the country. PM Modi himself has announced this. But in the ground report, the truth looks different.
PM Modi tweeted on Saturday, '28 April 2018 will be remembered as a historic day in the history of India's development. Tomorrow we have fulfilled a commitment that will change the lives of all Indians forever. I am happy that now electricity has reached every village in India.'
Contrary to the huge claims of the central government to illuminate 18,000 darkly drenched villages, the picture shows that there is a bag in this story. For examples, there are five Dalit-dominated villages situated on the banks of Narmada where there is no electricity called electricity and one of them is Alirajpur also.
Saprum village of Jharkhand is about 90 km from Jamshedpur but there is no such thing as electricity here. Even today, there are more than half a dozen villages in the Dholpur district of Rajasthan, which have not seen electricity even after so many years of independence. People of Ghuraiya Hera, Hathiyakhar, Kehri's Nagla, Rajghat, Haripura, Gola Ka Pura, Shankarpura, Thakurpura villages do not know how it feels to sit under the fan in summer.
According to non-government sources, only access to electricity has reached around 95 % + mark and full electrification still lacks by 10 percent. So it will take time by 2024 when the government completes it's second term so that full electrification is done in India villages.
