Modi meeting with ministers not connected with reshuffle: Javadekar

Kolkata: Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday clarified the meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with his council of ministers was an "exercise of accountability" and had nothing to do with a cabinet reshuffle. "What we have achieved on Thursday is really an exercise of accountability as Modi takes a keen interest in accountability," Javadekar said here. Modi on Thursday met his council of ministers in New Delhi and reviewed important projects and works of various ministries. "Under Modi's leadership there is an accountable government, so all ministers sit together once a month. We take stock of progress of work in accordance with the budget announcements made in the last three years. That was happening yesterday (Thursday) and there is no connection with reshuffle," Javadekar contended.
