"From the ramparts of the Red Fort, I announced that every village will be electrified".

Modi said that it was hard to electrify the last 18000 villages, as most were in remote areas, hilly areas and areas with poor connectivity.

Expressing delight in interacting with the villagers from the recently electrified 18000 villages, Prime Minister said "People who have not seen darkness, don't understand the meaning of illumination".

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

Mr Modi said on the 15th August, 2015, he had made a promise to electrify every village in 1000 days. "Then President (Sonia Gandhi) of the ruling party (Congress) went a step ahead and said "we will bring electricity to every home". Needless to say, none of that had happened during their long tenure.

The Saubhagya scheme was launched a year ago in September under which about 3.6 crore unelectrified households would be electrified by March 31, 2019. However, the government is aiming to energise all these families by 31 December, 2018, under Saubhagya.

There are around 4 crore un-electrified households in the country which are targeted for providing electricity connections by December 2018.
