According to reports, the gram pradhan of Nagla Fatela village has refuted the claim of PM that pictures tweeted from the handle of Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal were not of their village and no programme was organized in the village on Independence Day. “No programme was organized in our village. The picture with children watching the Independence Day programme does not belong to our village,” he said.
