PM Narendra Modi to chair 7th Governing Council meeting of NITI Aayog at Rashtrapati Bhawan Cultural Centre tomorrow
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the 7th Governing Council meeting of NITI Aayog at Rashtrapati Bhawan Cultural Centre, New Delhi tomorrow. The meeting will pave the way for synergies towards a new era of collaboration and co-operation between the Centre and States and Union Territories.
The agenda of the meeting includes crop diversification and achieving self-sufficiency in oilseeds, pulses and agri-communities, implementation of the National Education Policy and urban governance. The Governing Council Meeting will endeavour to finalise a roadmap and outcome-oriented action plan on each of the themes. As part of preparations for the meeting, the National Conference of Chief Secretaries held in Dharamshala in June this year which was chaired by the Prime Minister.
AIR Correspondent reports that this meeting would be very important as the country enters Amrit Kaal against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and in light of India hosting the G-20 Presidency and Summit next year. The meeting would also lay emphasis on the importance of the Presidency for India for the federal system and the role that States can play in highlighting their progress at the G-20 Platform.
