Guwahati/ 1st May’2018 (Prag News Desk):
On April 28, 2018, PM Narendra Modi tweeted about India becoming ‘Darkness free’ where every single village in India has now access to electricity. The tweet which PM said to be a historic event in the lives of each and every Indian, the reality though reflects the other side of his tall claims.
The fact, electricity hasn’t reached all villages in Assam. This plain truth was asserted again by the villagers in Assam after a recent statement by PM Modi on Twitter that ‘every single village of India now has access to electricity’.
There are over 20 villages in Assam which are still living under darkness and do not have access to electricity. Local reports and local news have given a data showing that the claims made by the BJP government, may in fact prove to be mere fallacy and full of false promises.
“To claim that all villages of India have been covered by electrification at a time when more than 20 villages in Dima Hasao of Assam still have no electricity is shameful and shocking,” said by Aching Zeme, who is a social worker and who provided the data on the villages of Assam which are still not covered by electricity.
