Union Cabinet today approved President Pranab Mukherjee's address to be delivered at the joint sitting of Parliament on June 9 in which the Narendra Modi government's roadmap would be outlined.

Sources said the main agenda of the 90-minute-long meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the approval of the Presidential address.

Various Union ministries have given their inputs to be included in the President's address which will be followed by a debate and reply by the Prime Minister.

The week-long session of the new Lok Sabha, which began today, will end on June 11.

The government has said if there is a need to extend it by a day or two it would be done.

Modi has already made it clear that his thrust will be on efficient governance, delivery and implementation.

He has asked his Cabinet colleagues to set a 100-day agenda identifying priorities and work for their implementation.

Modi has brought out a 10-point agenda which includes increasing investment, completing infrastructure projects in a time-bound manner and exploiting of natural resources, besides giving freedom to bureaucrats to take decisions and implement them.

The PM has told his Cabinet colleagues to take their Ministers of State along in implementation of programmes and that he would be regularly meeting them as also the Secretaries individually.
