NEW DELHI: After having asked all ministers in his Cabinet to tour states to dispel negative notions about demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sought reports on the details of the efforts undertaken by his ministerial colleagues. 

“The Prime Minister has sought reports from each minister about the tour programmes to the states and the areas visited by them. The ministers have to give details of people and groups they met during such tours and the outcome.

The ministers also have to explain misgivings people had during interactions on demonetisation,” said sources. The Prime Minister’s Office had asked the ministers to draw out their own plans and coordinate with Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting M Venkaiah Naidu.

“The PM is keen to know if the ministers gathered any significant feedback or advice, which the government could act upon in its bid to further curb the scope of black money and corruption in the system,” a source said, adding that the ministers were asked, in the last Cabinet meeting, to submit the report by Monday.
