Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday presided over a meeting to review preparations for the meeting of the governing council of NITI Aayog (National Institution for Transformation of India).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the fifth meeting of the NITI Aayog governing council on June 15 to discuss various issues concerning water management, agriculture and security.

In Monday’s meeting, officials of various departments made presentations on the policies for development of the state to be presented before NITI Aayog.

The presentations were made by the Basic Education, Revenue, Irrigation, Groundwater, Health and Family Welfare, Child Development and Nutrition, Agriculture and Home departments.

The NITI Aayog governing council includes all chief ministers, lieutenant governors of Union Territories, several Union ministers and senior government officials.

For the first NITI Aayog governing council meeting under the new Modi regime, all chief ministers and heads of Union Territories have been invited. However, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has declined to attend the meeting.

The governing council is expected to discuss important subjects, including major issues concerning water management, agriculture and aspirational district programme.
