New Delhi: With a focus to strengthen the sagging economy and create jobs, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday brainstormed with top bureaucrats of finance and other ministries to finalise the government’s 100-day agenda.
Sources said the meeting at the prime minister’s residence was attended by all five secretaries in the finance ministry and other key ministries as well as top officials of the Niti Aayog.
Ahead of the maiden budget of Modi’s second term in office, the high-level meeting is also likely to clear a five-year vision for the government with a view to achieving USD 5-trillion economy goal in the shortest possible time-frame.
It is understood that future course of many of the prime minister’s pet projects like doubling farmers’ income, PM-KISAN, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, piped water for all, electricity for all and others were discussed.
With the farm sector facing issues, Modi last week emphasized upon the need for structural reforms in agriculture which would boost private investment, strengthen logistics and provide ample market support to farmers.
The prime minister is likely to have discussed the road map for reforms for every department with a view to making it easier to do business in the country and boost the economy.
