Desperate for image makeover, Modi gears up for PR exercise

PM is likely to visit remote parts of the country to propagate NDA’s pro-poor and pro-farmer policies as a report card to the people on its first anniversary

New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has drawn up the public relation plans to propagate his government’s pro-poor and pro-farmer policies as a report card to the people on its first anniversary, asking all ministers to get ready for a mass contact tour across the country from May 12 to 30 to demolish the negative vibes created by the opposition parties.

According to sources, he may himself be in his constituency or in some remote part of the country on the day of the government first anniversary on May 26, when he assumed the charge. Also in store is his plan to wind up the anniversary celebrations with an address to the national media in Delhi on May 30.

He has asked all ministers to spread out to various states, address public meetings and hold press conferences to highlight achievements of their ministries in the last one year and give a report to the people on the new programmes their ministries are planning in the coming year.

Doordarshan and All India Radio, the official broadcasters, have been asked to interview these ministers and also the people in the remote villages to weave programmes on how the government policies like Jan Dhan Yojana have transformed their lives. These programmes are proposed to be telecast by Doordarshan from May 15 to 26.

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.

Modi will be himself away on a 3-nation tour of China, Mongolia and South Korea from May 14 to 19 and hence he held informal meetings with the ministers last week on how he wants projection of the government in the coming three weeks.
