Union Minister Prahlad Joshi made the claim in a meeting in Hassan, Karnataka on Thursday while responding to the Congress’ announcement.

They gave so little electricity that the whole country was plunged into darkness. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, electricity has reached every village.’ Then the Union Minister added, ‘The country’s population has doubled due to lack of electricity during the Congress period.’
