Last electrified Indian village

By CORRESPONDENT

IMPHAL, May 24 - Residents of Leisang village in Manipur�s Kangpokpi district which Prime Minister Narendra Modi had declared the last Indian village to have electrified last month, aired their grievances to State Chief Minister N Biren Singh during Meeyamgi Numit (People�s Day) on Wednesday.

Village chairman Tongsat Haokip also urged the CM to set up necessary infrastructure in the village. Leisang, just 77 km from the State capital, is a very backward village.

The 80-odd residents of the village solely depend on kerosene lamp, candle and solar batteries for light. But the village got connected to a power grid for the first time since Independence, earning the distinction of being the last village in India to get electricity, three weeks back.

Now the villagers can watch a movie at a go from start to finish,without having to worry about recharging the solar batteries. �Otherwise we watch Manipuri movies in installments depending on the batteries charged by solar photo voltaic plates�, a villager said.
