Diwali message : Producers of electricity have no electricity

SP Tudu from Jharkhand is sending happy diwali message to everyone on this festival of lights but he says that he also wants to tell about his state Jharkhand which produces lots of electricity but in many villages like his they are forced to have only an oil lamp for light. He says Bokaro has a big steel factory but his house has utensils made of soil. These are the contradictions of modern Jharkhand which is a rich state but where half the population live below poverty line
