To mark the PM Narendra Modi-led NDA government’s 100 days in power, the Prime Minister’s Office has directed secretaries of 10 key ministries to launch a publicity blitz in the first week of September, including detailed press conferences.
Sources said that at a meeting last week, the PMO asked the secretaries to launch a publicity drive and complete it by September 8.
Each ministry has been asked to hold a press conference, to be addressed by the minister concerned, to talk about its performance in the first three months, prepare a video presentation as well as a PowerPoint presentation to list its achievements and the changes that have been made since coming to power.
The press meets will include a question and answer session.
The 10 ministries include Finance, Home Affairs, Human Resource Development, Drinking Water & Sanitation, Railways, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Ministry of Personnel, Corporate Affairs and some other infrastructure ministries. The series will begin with the Finance Ministry.
Officials said the next phase would include the remaining ministries.
