New Delhi, June 12 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday chaired the first meeting of new Council of Ministers and outlined the road-map and action plan of his government for the next five years.

Ahead of the Council of Ministers meeting, the Prime Minister met his Cabinet and took several decisions including triple talaq Bill and others.

This was first-ever meeting of the new Council of Ministers with the Prime Minister. Sources said he spelled out his priorities for Mission 2022 and asked them to present a report card every three months.

Sources said the Prime Minister told his colleagues that he would review the task done by them and would monitor the ‘high priority’ schemes being implemented by the various ministries.

Sources said the Prime Minister was more concerned about the schemes and projects such as ‘housing for all’ related with Mission 2022, the year when the country celebrates its 75th year of Independence.

He spelled out his priorities related to ministries dealing with the social sector. For Rural Development and the newly-constituted Jal Shakti Ministry, Modi outlined specific tasks, the sources said.

At present water crisis, particularly in rural areas, is posing a grave threat for the agriculture sector in the wake of apprehensions of a drought in the western region.

Modi has already asked the ministries to furnish an action plan for their respective departments for the first 100 days.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar told media that the meeting of the Council of Ministers was a regular affair, saying it is continuation of the practice started by the Prime Minister in 2014.
