Union Minister for Law and Justice, Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad speaks about why Narendra Modi-led government will be different from the previous regime at The Indian Express’ Idea Exchange. Here are four facts on what will drive the new NDA government:
1. The governance of Narendra Modi will be different and he gave an indication of this even before taking over as PM, asking all the secretaries to give a presentation on three points very clearly: what went wrong, what decision helped it go wrong and, if they had been given the authority, what they would have done differently.
2. It will be a PMO-driven government.
3. It will not be a government for the GoM (group of ministers), of the GoM and by the GoM. Decisions will not be delayed and the rules of the game will be very clear.
4. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stressed that delivery and implementation were equally important. Ministers must ensure that whatever is there must be delivered properly and implemented. Because, the implementation aspect is at times ignored, or may be ignored. There is great insistence on that.
