You have a few hours to celebrate, then get down to work.
This was the message Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave to the 19 newly inducted ministers of state on Tuesday.
Soon after the meeting of the Union Cabinet, Modi interacted with the newly sworn-in ministers where he asked them to work hard with honesty and dedication.

He said the ministers should dedicate themselves to the development of the country. Modi also said the projects initiated by the government should be visible at the grass-roots level and the last man in queue should get the benefit.
In the little over 30 minute meeting, he told the ministers that they were free to celebrate their entry into the Union Council of Ministers for a few hours. But after that they should get down to work.
Modi holds a meeting of the Council of Ministers every month where work done by various ministries is reviewed.
