The meeting, held four months after one in June, was expected to review the implementation of the welfare and other schemes of the government.

There were presentation on the progress of the Namami Gange and the projects undertaken in the MSME sector, sources said.

“The Prime Minister said because these aspects are technical, such as explaining water quality or sewage treatment plans, its difficult for the common man to understand and recommended more dissemination of information in simple way and language that can be understood,” said an official present in the meeting.

The meeting of the council of ministers followed the Cabinet Meeting. The cabinet ministers meet every Wednesday to take policy decisions.
