On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a review meeting with the secretaries of various ministries and departments, media reported. The discussion in the evening comes in the backdrop of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic that has taken a toll on lives and the economy.
Prime Minister Modi earlier this month chaired a meeting, which was termed as ‘Chintan Shivir’, with his council of ministers. Although any relevant details regarding the agenda of Saturday’s meeting are yet to be revealed, those familiar with the matter have said that four more such ‘Chintan Shivir’ meetings have been planned for discussing ways to improve governance further.
The Prime Minister also chaired a high-level review meeting on September 10 regarding the Covid-19 situation and vaccination status in the country.
In July, Prime Minister Modi effected a reshuffle of his cabinet ahead of seven states going for assembly polls next year. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power in six states, including Uttar Pradesh. In the September 14 meeting, Modi told his cabinet colleagues that “simplicity is the way of life” and asked the ministers to learn from the best practices of their colleagues.
