Modi asks new Ministers to be focused

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Prime Minister Modi on Tuesday welcomed his newly inducted colleagues in the first meeting of the Council of Ministers held after the September 3 Cabinet expansion and asked them to work in a focused manner.

Nine new faces, all first-timers, were inducted as Ministers of State (MoS) while four MoS were promoted to Cabinet rank in the expansion.

Informed sources said that although Modi did not directly mention the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the inductees were given to understand that they would have have to work without showing any laxity.
