New Delhi: Governance, Implementation and Delivery are the new Mantra of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. After storming to power on the twin planks of good governance and development, Modi has unveiled a 10-point agenda and asked his ministerial colleagues to chart out a 100-day target. In their 100-day agenda, the Union Ministers have been directed to spell out the timetable and priorities of every ministry and implement the same.
Modi, who promised “achche din aanewaale hain (good days are coming),” wanted the ministers to get cracking with their work in right earnest, so that the government becomes more responsive to the people and show visible change in the new dispensation. In the second Cabinet meeting in 48 hours, where the schedule for the Parliament Session was finalised, Prime Minister Narendra Modi underscored to his ministerial colleagues the importance of overall governance and on the need for efficiency in implementation and delivery. Prime Minister Modi, who as Gujarat Chief Minister in the past, often criticised the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre for what he called its step-motherly treatment to the State, told his Cabinet colleagues to respond to issues of the States on priority. “Take the States along, as that is true fede ralism,” he reportedly told theministers.
Whenever proposals are received from the States, the same should be addressed on a priority, Modi advised the ministers. Similarly, he wanted the ministers to address public representations and grievances on top priority. He also cautioned the ministers to be careful in their public utterances. Prime Minister Modi would soon be holding separate meetings with the ministers and with the Secretaries, in a bid to give a push to his agenda of good governance and development.
Modi also advised the Cabinet Ministers to take the Ministers of State into confidence and ensure that they are given adequate work allocation. In the past, the Congress-led UPA Government had witnessed a friction between the Ministers of State and their Cabinet Ministers, with the junior Ministers taking their grievance to the doorstep ofthe then Prime Minister. Significantly, on Thursday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a round of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). Modi inquired about the functioning of the sections and the facilities available for the functioning of the staff. Later, in a tweet, Modi said, “Took a round of the PMO on reaching South Block this (Thursday) morning.”
