All Indian villages now have electricity. India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the final village to get electricity was a remote village in Manipur state. It got connected to the grid on Sunday. Electricity for villages was a big government promise. Mr Modi thanked everyone. He said: "April 28, 2018 will be remembered as a historic day in the development...of India....We [kept a promise]...the lives of...Indians will be [changed] forever.

Mr Modi gave 18,000 villages electricity for the first time. A village is electrified when 10 per cent of its houses and public places (including schools and health centres) have power. Modi is happy, but there is more work to be done. The World Bank says 200 million Indians still have no electricity. The "India Today" newspaper said many villages still had no electricity. A villager said this was a problem at night because it gets many elephants.
