‘Minimum government, maximum governance’ on track

A note from Modi’s secretariat last night said Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi had “made a dent” in formation of ministries by adopting, for the first time, a guiding principle of “Minimum Government and Maximum Governance”.

“It is a good beginning in transforming entity of assembled ministries to Organic Ministries. It will bring more coordination between different departments, will be more effective and bring a speed in process,” the note stated.

The ministries that are expected to be merged and restructured are those of transport, which will include surface transport, shipping, metro, bullet trains, railways and civil aviation. The ministry for overseas indians could be merged with that of external affairs; the ministries of panchayati raj and rural development will fuse into one, and ministries for social and affairs are going to merge, too. Internal security will not be separated from home.

The press release said the focus was on convergence in the activities of various ministries where one Cabinet minister would head a cluster of ministries working in complimentary sectors. “Mr Modi is eventually aiming at smart where the top layers of government will be downsized and there would be expansion at the grass root level,” the note added , elaborating that Modi had tried in a rational manner to club departments dealing in one broad aspect of governance in the ministry formation. “Earlier, there was political instability and multi-party governments, the ministry formation was almost done in a bifurcated manner. Shri Narendra Modi tried in a rational manner to club like-minded departments in the ministry formation in such way to convert entity of assembled ministry to organic entity,” the note said.

“He formed ministry using as an instrument to deal with challenges and expectation of people. Integrated and inter-connected nature of is being focused in this new dent.” The document read: “In the ministry formation, the process of development will be more inclusive than it has been.”

Modi’s office said he was aware of the high expectations of the people. “For whole four days, he was busy with the formation of ministry and discussing various alternatives to effective governance, convergence and coordination between various ministries.”
