NEW DELHI: Officers across
have got a fresh task which is to go through all the Independence Day speeches of Prime Minister
since 2014 and note down his mentions about the respective department or
relating to particular entities. They have been asked to prepare actions taken on those issues.
Some ministries have even issued directions to different departments to go through all
Mann Ki Baat
— the monthly radio address of the PM since 2014 — and list the references he has made to issues relating to the particular departments. In this case also, they have been asked to prepare the details of actions taken so far on such issues.
“There has been strict monitoring across the ministries and departments. Since the PM’s addresses to the nation from Red Fort or in
ki Baat are assurances to the people, it is felt that every department must take necessary steps. Monitoring of all issues and development have been the hallmark of this government,” said an official.
He added that every secretary of each department receives the full audio recording of Mann ki Baat a day after it’s broadcast and hence none can give any excuse for not going through them.
