If the electric field inside a conductor is zero then how is it possible that when potential difference is applied across the ends of a conductor an electric field develops inside the conductor and conducts current?

By applying potential difference across the ends of the conductor, electric field is not developed inside the conductor. In conductors there are free electrons which are free to move here and there so when potential difference is applied those free electrons move in one particular direction due to which current develops.
