NEW DELHI: Taking steps to fulfil his avowed agenda of good governance, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday asked his ministers to come up with a plan of action for the first 100 days, lay thrust on efficiency and delivery in their work and give quick response to representations from states and public representatives.

Modi, who assumed charge of his office two days ago, spelled out some guidelines for his ministers at a meeting of the union cabinet earlier in the day.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, who briefed reporters after the meeting, listed the guidelines but did not say if the government had finalized its top 10 priorities.

Naidu said Modi had told his cabinet colleagues that the main issue was good governance.

"The prime minister said that the main issue was governance. That is the need of the hour and there is need to focus on it. He said delivery and efficiency is important and there was also need to pay attention to implementation (of government schemes)," he said.

Naidu said the prime minister heard the ministers and gave suggestions on some issues, as well as telling cabinet ministers to take their ministers of states into confidence and give them adequate work.
