Electricity in India – Can Someone Turn on The Lights? | India Loud & Clear | EP 5

This week in India Loud & Clear we travel to literally the dark places of our country.

At a time when we are the 7th largest economy in the world, many Indians are still deprived of a simple thing like electricity. Despite Prime Minister Modi’s claim that India is fully electrified. Our community correspondents show Modi’s 100% claim is far from the truth. In the studio anchor, Grace talks to #BattiGul campaign leader Raj Kumar who was successfully mobilizing Indians to send reports from their unelectrified villages and cities.

India Loud & Clear is the weekly news show produced by Video Volunteers, the media organization by and from Community Correspondents. We bring you no breaking news, no sensation, only community voices.
