The Narendra Modi-led government has suggested that adding the word "PM" or the name of a nationalist leader to the name of a scheme can help solve the debate around naming central schemes.
The Centre has also recommended that fortnightly films be produced to highlight the achievements of Narendra Modi. The government has reportedly suggested that these films be "mandatorily" played before the screening of movies in every theatre.
According to the Indian Express the suggestion was made by the group of ministers (GoM), during a meeting chaired by Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, set up to recommend ways of increasing visibility of central schemes in states and districts.
As per the daily, it was suggested at the meeting that the government's achievements be highlighted, stressing on the "difference between the past and present" in a "humorous way".
Other suggestions reportedly made at the meetings were:
Recommendations to allow MPs to head the committees in districts for such schemes, which are currently headed by district magistrates or superintendents of police.
The Centre reportedly also stressed on "exclusive news" in media houses and suggested that such information should be "selectively given out to a few journalists" as "making them exclusive stories will ensure better coverage".
