    There is nothing fake about the images released by NASA to highlight the electrification of rural areas in India, Union Minister for Coal and Railways, Piyush Goyal said. He posted the tweet after he was accused of posting fake images on the electrification of all villages in the country under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    Goyal's office also provided links to the NASA website and a report published by National Geographic to corroborate its clarification.

    "There is nothing fake about the latest NASA images depicting the humongous change in India's brightness at night. National Geographic also analysed this data and credited rural electrification among other factors," the tweet said.

    On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that April 28 would be remembered as a historic day in the development journey of India. We fulfilled a commitment due to which lives of several Indians will be transformed forever. I am delighted that every single Indian village in India now has access to electricity, Modi also said.
