Putin asked the government “not to take people for a ride”


President Vladimir Putin, speaking at a meeting of the Council for strategic development and priority projects, said that the citizens want to hear is not “the enumeration of laws, policies, orders, and results of government activities should “be measured in positive, understandable things.” According to him, the Cabinet of Ministers have “deep, meaningful approach to the formulation of the final results.” “From this, without exaggeration, depends the whole further course of the work and its success” — said Putin.

“We need as clearly and distinctly tell the public what we want to achieve. And, of course, in any case, you can’t have people fooling detailed listing of laws, practices, errands. Citizens do not want to hear it”, — Putin said (quoted by “RIA Novosti”).
