Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the fifth meeting of Niti Aayog's Governing Council on 15 June to discuss various issues concerning water management, agriculture and security, official sources said on Tuesday, 4 June.

The council, the apex body of Niti Aayog, includes all chief ministers, lieutenant governors of union territories, several union ministers and senior government officials.

This will be the first governing council meeting under the new Modi government.

“All the chief ministers and heads of union territories have been invited by the Niti Aayog to participate in the meeting,” sources said.


Besides these, the council will also deliberate on security issues in districts impacted by left-wing extremism in states like Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.

Headed by the Prime Minister, the Governing Council meets regularly, and its first meeting took place on 8 February 2015.

The second meeting of the council on 15 July 2015 reviewed the progress made by the three sub-groups of chief ministers and the two task forces.

In the third meeting of the council on 23 April 2017, Modi had pitched for conducting simultaneous elections of the Lok Sabha and the state assemblies and shifting to a January-December fiscal year.

The fourth meeting of the council on 17 June 2018 deliberated upon measures taken to double farmers' income and the progress of government's flagship schemes.
