Delhi: Amist logjam in Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday told his Council of Ministers to stick to the development agenda and tell people what the government was doing. 

At the same time, PM who met ministers over tea, asked them to create greater connect with masses, as per reports.

He also told them to generate feedback from the poor and deprived for the Budget.

The meeting was held at PM's residence and is said to have lasted one-and-a-half-hours.

Further, in what could be seen as an attempt to motivate his team, PM Modi asked them to 'feel upbeat' about what the government is doing and 'not get
rattled by the attack by the Opposition.

PM alleged that the attack was building a 'campaign on falsehood'.

As per reports, NDA ministers will fan out across the country from January to expose the Opposition's stalling tactics in Parliament due to which several key bills are stuck and highlight the government's achievements seeking to project it as pro-poor.

A detailed plan will be chalked out later but the ministers have been asked to start visiting constituencies from the second week of January and spend at least 30 hours in areas assigned to them.

Not much work has taken place in the Winter Session with Congress and other Opposition parties stalling Parliament on a host of issues.
