Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cautioned his ministers against staying in five-star hotels and availing of any benefit from public sector undertakings attached to their ministries, including using their cars.
He is understood to have said that he was extremely unhappy with the recent tendency of some ministers' preference to stay in five-star hotels instead of accommodation that the government provides.
The PM made it clear to the ministers that they should stick to government accommodation while on official duty and not give into the "temptation" of staying in five star hotels, sources said.
He also told his ministers that he was unhappy with reports of some of them using vehicles from public sector undertakings under their ministries. The PM made it clear that he would not tolerate any misuse of vehicles of PSUs, either by ministers or their families.
