Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Tuesday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the country has been “trapped” in a culture of ‘NAMO’ or ‘No Action, Message Only’, ever since the BJP came to power at the Centre.

Mr. Ramesh was reacting to Mr. Modi’s usage of abbreviations like ABCD (Avoid, Bypass, Confuse, Delay), which the Prime Minister said should be replaced by ‘ROAD’ that stands for Responsibility, Ownership, Accountability, Discipline.

Mr. Modi at a workshop on the ‘Make in India’ campaign had said that silos in government functioning have been demolished.

“Government is generally trapped in ‘ABCD’ culture from top to bottom.... A means Avoid, B-Bypass, C-Confuse, D-Delay.

Our efforts is to move from this culture to ‘ROAD’ where R stands for Responsibility, O-Ownership, A-Accountability, D-Discipline. We are committed to moving towards this roadmap,” he said.
