New Delhi, June 5: As Narendra Modi took oath as the 15th prime minister of India on May 26 this year, he also set an agenda for his council of ministers, soon after forming the BJP-led NDA government at the centre.

According to a report, PM Modi chalked out a list of do's and don'ts for his council of ministers.

Some of the measures are ministers are not empowered to talk to the media, ministers won't appoint personal staff without PMO clearance, no 'red beacons' on ministers cars and visitors should not be allowed with mobile phones, cameras, tape recorders to avoid sting operations.

Avoid appointing your relatives as personal staff, don't give any government contract to your kins/relatives, discourage favoritism on the basis of family relationship, ensure probity in public dealing are also among Modi's list of measures.

By taking a cue from PM Modi's list of do's and don'ts, MP Priyanka Singh Rawat from Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh took the decision to annul the appointment of her father Uttam Ram after being conveyed that Modi was unhappy with her decision and wanted her to reverse it.

Two days after taking oath, Prime Minister Modi had asked his Cabinet colleagues to set a 100-day agenda with focus on efficient governance, delivery and implementation of programmes.

The directives were given by Modi at a Cabinet meeting in the context of his 10-point vision which includes increasing investment, completing infrastructure projects in time-bound manner and exploiting the natural resources to the country's benefit.

The Modi government has also asked all ministries to take prior approval of the Prime Minister-led Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC) before appointing Officer on Special Duty as their personal staff.
