Ministers meet to publicise  government initiatives

About 35 Union ministers on Friday discussed ways to reach out to people on Modi government’s first full fledged budget and parliamentary initiatives to push key reform legislations through both the Houses.

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi, home minister Rajnath Singh and finance minister Arun Jaitley on official foreign tours, Parliamentary affairs minister M Venkaiah Naidu requested ministers to disseminate information about the seriousness of the government initiatives on development and good governance fronts and counter the Opposition propaganda that the Centre was incapable of fulfilling its tall promises made during the general elections.

Cabinet ministers, including Sushma Swaraj, Nitin Gadkari, Ramvilas Paswan, Suresh Prabhu and Manohar Parrikar, and ministers of state Jitendra Singh, Prakash Javadekar and Rajiv Pratap Rudy were present at the meeting held at Naidu’s office in Parliament building.
Parliament will go into recess for a month on March 20.
