PM Modi reviews ministers' performance
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday held a meeting to review the performance of his cabinet colleagues. The PM holds such meetings on the third Wednesday of every month but was not able to hold it for the last two months due to hectic campaigning for recently concluded assembly elections in five states. "As the Modi government is completing its three years next month, the ministers were asked to spell out their achievements in their departments, while a few of them showcases their performance through presentations," the sources said.
Notably, Cabinet ministers have already been asked to list five achievements each in their ministries that have benefited people, including key reforms. They have also been asked to provide data that shows the progress made since the BJP-led government came to power.
Last week, Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu had sent a letter to all the ministers explaining that these inputs would be included in a booklet that the government plans to publish before May 26, the day PM Modi took oath three years ago. The ministers have been asked to make three-page submissions that must be in bullet points only and must list the key performance indicators or KPIs of the department.
Some ministers have been asked to prepare notes on specific sectors. Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar has been asked to write one on the highlights of PM's tours abroad and on increased investment flow from foreign countries.
