New Delhi, May 4: As the Narendra Modi government is soon going to celebrate its first year in power, cabinet ministers are being asked to reach out to every corners of the country, especially villages to highlight centre's achievements, to dispel rumours.
As per an Economic Times report, to counter opposition's accusations that the government is pro-corporate and publicise its 'pro-poor, pro-farmer' policies, the NDA government has planned a Jan Sampark Karyakram (public contact programme).
PM has, reportedly, asked all ministers to go to their constituencies and other remote areas between May12 and 30 and hold press conferences and public meetings.
Reports are also coming that PM Modi himself is keen on travelling outside Delhi to showcase his government's efforts to reach out to the rural population.
The ET quoted top officials in the government as that PM Modi has expressed desire in spending May 26, the day he assumed charge last year, in a remote area or his constituency, Varanasi.
Although nothing has been decided yet, but there is a strong possibility that PM Modi may attend a function or address the media in some remote part of the country.
There is also a possibility that after returning from his trip to China, PM Modi may choose to go to Varanasi but the details will be decided after he is back, an official said.
Modi will be making a three-nation tour to China, Mongolia and South Korea from May 14-19.
A series of meetings are being held to finalise Narendra Modi government's programmes to mark one year in power. The programmes are likely to be finalised next week after PM's final approval, sources said.
Union Minister Anant Kumar, Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley are fine tuning the Modi government's one year programme agenda.
