Claim: When we formed government, only 56% of rural habitations were connected by a road. Today more than 90% of rural habitations are connected by a road. I am sure that we will definitely achieve the target of 100% soon: PM
Fact: False. As of January 2019, 79% rural habitations were connected by a road, and not 90% as the PM claimed.
Explanation: While 53% habitations were connected by a road in 2014, this rose to 79% (147,996 of the total 186,425) in January 2019–according to data on the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana Portal–and not 90% as the PM claimed.
