In his first meeting with the new Council of Ministers on
Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi instructed all the ministers to reach
office on time every morning and avoid working from home.
He also asked the cabinet ministers to involve their deputy
ministers (Ministers of State) in all important decisions of the ministeries.
He said the deputy ministers should be given adequate responsibilties.
He further added that Members of Parliament and party
workers should be given time for meeting, suggesting that their grievances
should be heard.
Ahead of the Council of Ministers meeting, the Prime
Minister met his Cabinet and outlined the road-map and action plan of his
government for the next five years. He took several decisions including triple
talaq Bill among others.
This was first-ever meeting of the new Council of Ministers
with the Prime Minister. Sources said he spelled out his priorities for Mission
2022 and asked them to present a report card every three months.
Sources said the Prime Minister told his colleagues that he
would review the task done by them and would monitor the ‘high priority’
schemes being implemented by the various ministries.
Sources said the Prime Minister was more concerned about the
schemes and projects such as ‘housing for all’ related with Mission 2022, the
year when the country celebrates its 75th year of Independence.
He spelled out his priorities related to ministries dealing
with the social sector. For Rural Development and the newly-constituted Jal
Shakti Ministry, Modi outlined specific tasks, the sources said.
At present water crisis, particularly in rural areas, is
posing a grave threat for the agriculture sector in the wake of apprehensions
of a drought in the western region.
Modi has already asked the ministries to furnish an action
plan for their respective departments for the first 100 days.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar told
media that the meeting of the Council of Ministers was a regular affair, saying
it is continuation of the practice started by the Prime Minister in 2014.
