Minister for Rural Development Narendra Singh Tomar has been directed to coordinate with the Ministries for this task, the PTI added.

“All the ministers have been asked to submit details of their outstation tour programmes of the last three months. If not on tour, they should mention if they were in Delhi and attended office.

“The idea is to know if the Ministers visited places beyond their respective constituencies to promote initiatives of the government, particularly demonetisation. The exercise is also aimed at knowing if they were balancing office work and field duties,” PTI quoted as their sources saying.
