No Electricity in MP's Bead village, Locals Protest

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s claim of electrifying the entire nation under Ujjwala Yojana fell flat when residents of Bead village of Dewas district held a protest and demanded free kerosene oil to be supplied to the village that still doesn’t have electricity.

Bead village falls under the Bagli Tehsil of Dewas district, which is a tribal area and is 8-10 km away from the town. The district electricity board recently claimed to have electrified the Bagli Tehsil and said that no house was left without an electricity connection. The board announced it during a programme, and also claimed to have put all the connections under the state government’s new electricity scheme that caps the electricity bills at Rs 200 a month.
