Congress discusses CMP with its allies
PM-designate Singh has already made it clear that the Govt will adopt policies that are pro-growth, pro-investment, and pro-employment.
The Congress is holding discussions with its allies on finalisation of the Common Minimum Programme (CMP), Ahmed Patel, political secretary to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, said on Friday.
Asked about finalisation of portfolios, Patel told reporters outside the 10, Janpath residence of Gandhi, "that exercise is also going on side-by-side."
In the wake of Lok Sabha elections, NDA Government had not made in changes in the oil prices, leaving a tough task ahead for the new Government.
The sources said the CMP will also give a new impetus to agriculture and irrigation. Singh has already made it clear the Government would adopt policies that were "pro-growth, pro-investment, and pro-employment".
The CMP would also give a boost to infrastructure development with Singh expressing his resolve to continue some of the good work done by the previous Government like highways project linking four metros and development of rural roads.
