All Indian villages now have electricity. India's Prime Minister said the final village to get electricity was connected on Sunday. Electricity was a big government promise. Mr Modi thanked everyone. He said it was a "historic day in the development...of India." He said: "the lives of...Indians will be [changed] forever".
About 18,000 villages got electricity for the first time. A village is electrified when 10 per cent of its buildings have power. Modi is happy, but there is more work to be done. The World Bank says 200 million Indians have no electricity. A newspaper said many villages still had no electricity. A villager said this was a problem.
