Well, PM Modi’s Claim About Village Nagla Fatela Of Hathras Turns Out To Be False After All!

We all are glued to our television set, when our Prime Minister Narendra Modi was delivering a powerful speech from Red Fort India. Narendra Modi speech was indeed a powerful one and he cover as many areas as possible in given time frame and we applaud Mr. Modi for it, but it turns out that not all part of his speech was right, though.

Modi on Monday in his Independence Day said that in Nagla Fatela (a village in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh) electricity has reached after 70 years. In his speech he said- “Nagla Phatela village is just 3 hours from Delhi, but Delhi took 70 years to send electricity to it”. But the truth is there is no power in the village. 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. When contacted DVVNL MD SVS.Rathore Said electricity is already there from a very long time but later he refused to comment. The Nagla Fatela village comes under Sasni tehsil of Hathras district in Uttar Pradesh. Electricity is basic requirement and it should be a top most priority for every government to fulfil this need. We have contacted DM Hathras and UP Power Ministry, their reply is awaited.
