PM modi conducts a 12-point test on govt agenda for BJP CMs

Thirteen chief ministers of Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled states took a 12-point test before Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who pitched for a fresh push to welfare schemes and better coordination between the party and its government on Sunday.

These CMs gave separate presentations of 15 minutes each before the PM and BJP president Amit Shah, elaborating on each of the 12 questions they were asked at the party headquarters in Delhi.

Deputy chief ministers of three states were also present in the meeting also attended by Union ministers Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj, M Venkaiah Naidu and Nitin Gadkari.

The CMs were asked questions such as development initiatives in their states, mechanism for party-government coordination, social media initiatives, promotion of digital programmes, pro-poor initiatives among others.

A similar drill was conducted in Delhi in August 2016, where the BJP chief ministers were given specific targets on issues of governance and their promotion. The PM also reviewed implementation of those targets.

The dinner meeting, which started close to 7pm, lasted nearly five hours. The exercise, just a month before the third anniversary of the Modi government, is seen as preparation for the next general election in 2019.
