Modi announced the scheme amid speculations over announcement of a booster package to drive the economy out of the ongoing slowdown. As many as 4.05 crore families are yet to be provided electricity connections.

Addressing the media earlier, Jaitley also said that the main point of PM Modi's speech at BJP's national executive meet was that we all should take BJP beyond elections and make it instrument of mass participation. The dig was aimed at controversies surrounding Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

"Demonetisation, GST implementation did not work out. However, harsh words can't be a substitute for no substantial charge against the government", he said. "The government will give the connection at your doortep", Modi said.

To make his position on corruption clear, Modi also told his partymen, and through them, the country at large, that he can not be compromised in the fight against corruption since he "doesn't have any relatives". As he has often done, Modi sought to explain that he has experienced the travails of the less well-off, doing without electricity as a student.
