Rural Electrification claims of BJP ‘ring hollow’

1. In 10 years (2004-14), Congress Govt. electrified 1,08,280 villages i.e., an average of 10,828 villages per year. Prior thereto, Congress had electrified 5,79,012 villages.
2. BJP merely changed the name of ‘Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Viduyatikaran Yojna’ to ‘Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojna’. 
3. BJP promised to electrify 18,452 un-electrified Villages within 3 years but electrified only 13,432 villages i.e. a mere 4,477 villages per year with 5,020 villages still remaining.
