Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday in his Independence Day said that in Nagla Fatela (a village in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh) electricity has reached after 70 years. He said, “Nagla Phatela village is just 3 hours from Delhi, but Delhi took 70 years to send electricity to it”. But in reality there is no power in the village. 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. People in the village also claim that poles have been set up and electricity metres have been installed in the houses but there is no power supply.
