Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his remarks in Germany, Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday said he should have acknowledged the tremendous achievements in India by 2014 and added that his government was only continuing the work of previous dispensations.

In a series of tweets, Chidambaram said on the day the prime minister claimed that electricity has reached all villages, there was news of steps being taken on a "war footing basis" to take electricity to a hamlet in NDA presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu's native village.

"This is not the only hamlet or village that does not have electricity. There is no shame in admitting that electricity has yet to reach several remote areas and villages of India. There is no shame in admitting that several thousand households in India do not have electricity," the former Union minister said.
