The case for photons as the conductors of electrical energy is as follows :- The drift velocity of electrons in a conductor with a 100V and 1 amp is .4mm which is approx 300 billion times less than c. The distance between electrons in a conductor is like having a circle with a 6km radius , the flow of electrons is like a billiard ball placed at the centre ,trying to hit a billiard ball placed on the perimeter of this circle. Is it possible ?

That would be a case AGAINST electrons, not FOR photons (if it were an accurate description of what is going on, which it is not). A theory must be able to stand on its own.

In any case, ProdQuanta, all I read was this:
"Aumic" wave theory or New Field theory holds that the universe is saturated with such virtual photons [Note ]which are exactly similar to real photons in structure but whose energy is minimal , these virtual photons are moving in random directions , however as soon as a real photon appears they align themselves (rather in the manner of electrons in a wire conducting a current ) in the direction of propagation of the photon forming a line whose ends rest on infinity.
Sounds like an aether theory to me.
