MPThe claims of Prime Minister Saubhagya Scheme to electrify all households in India seem to be a distant dream in Madhya Pradesh as more than 26 lakh families are still deprived of electricity. Around 26 lakh 54 thousand 474 families are yet to get electricity connection in the BJP-ruled state.

The campaign targeted to make electricity accessible to more than 40 lakh households of the state but unfortunately only 14 lakh 46 thousand households have the accessibility of electricity so far.

According to official report released on Thursday, the government is working tirelessly in order to provide electricity connections to all the households where electricity has not reached for years. Meanwhile, Agar-Malwa, Mandsaur, Indore, Khandwa, Neemuch, Dewas, Ratlam, Harda, Ashoknagar, Ujjain and Shajapur in Madhya Pradesh are completely electrified.

The government has claimed to electrify the remaining houses in the next five months. The Eastern Region Electricity Distribution Company has been assigned the target for electrifying 15 lakh 7 thousand 20 households of 20 districts of the region.

So far, the company has been successful in providing electricity to 4 lakh 81 thousand and 908 households.Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed to have electrified every single village of India. He said, “28th April 2018 will be remembered as a historic day in the development journey of India. Yesterday, we fulfilled a commitment due to which the lives of several Indians will be transformed forever! I am delighted that every single village of India now has access to electricity.”
