Lucknow: BSP chief Mayawati on Thursday said the Digital India programme is ineffective until Prime Minister Narendra Modi fulfills his pre-poll promise of supplying electricity to every home.

"The Digital India initiative of Prime Minister Modi appears ineffective at first glance. People were not able to watch it (the launch ceremony) in absence of electricity," Maywati said in a statement.

"The Narendra Modi government should first use its energy and resources to fulfill its poll promise of 24x7 power supply," she said, adding "wrong policies and unrealistic programmes will not benefit people."
