Though there is more than five weeks time to get poll results, he has sent an alert to officials on the proposed agenda for the new government.

Top PMO sources confirmed that in the midst of hectic election campaigning, the PM has tasked to chalk out an agenda on the scale of Swacch Bharat with sweeping economic and bureaucratic reforms.
“The focus is on freeing the key sectors — oil and gas, minerals, infrastructure and education — of red tape so that the foundation for India becoming a developed country in 2047 is laid in the coming 100 days. We believe that by removing red tape in core sectors we can easily boost the GDP growth by 2.5%,” said one of those three officials.
Following Prime Minister’s directive, these officials are locked in meetings through weekends to build the agenda which has a connect with the public and is for larger good like waste to wealth mission and enhanced health care benefits in rural areas.
