"Electricity has already reached all rural areas. This year, the 100 per cent electrification of households will be achieved through the Saubhagya scheme," he said.
"Over 6.4 crore households were given LPG connections in just three years under the Ujjwala Scheme. A 'Blue Flame' revolution is underway and LPG coverage has reached more than 90 per cent of the population," said Modi.
Turning to the global energy situation, Modi said a "historic transition" is underway and the world needs to move towards more responsible pricing for oil and gas.
He emphasised the need to move towards transparent and flexible markets for both oil and gas.
"For far too long the world has seen crude prices on a roller coaster and called for responsible pricing of crude oil and natural gas, which balances the interests of both the producer and consumer," he said.
