It means that ministers are not doing their job if they don’t evaluate the development plans or if they don’t know about the plans. In the Modi government, ministers work as a team. Everything including matters like Covid, vaccination, education, railway etc. is discussed as a team. All this will be understood by those who understand development beyond politics. We call it development, some call it politics.
