It has been reported that the people who are witnessing power supply in their homes for the first time have expressed happiness especially given without access to electricity the children would face a lot of problems.

Hailing the development, Rajouri's Sarpanch Sajid parvev said, “There were around 20,000 houses in the district that never had access to electricity. PM Narendra Modi made it possible by implementing schemes. We have provided all the houses with electricity.”

The Saubhagya scheme had been launched by PM modi on 25 September in 2017 with the aim to provide electricity connections to all the households in India, across the rural and urban landscapes.
