Secretary To Lieutenant Governor Summoned: The Central Information Commission sent legal notices to the secretary to Lieutenant governor in RTI case.
Legal notices have been slapped to the secretary to Lieutenant Governor by Central Information Commission in a Right to information case.
The Secretary to Lieutenant governor CL Das has been asked by way of sending legal notices to appear before the Central Information Commission on October 15 which reacted very seriously over the RTI application was handled by Leieutenant Governor Secretary CL Das.
It is learnt that the notices have been sent by the Information Commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu.
The development of sending notices came after an appeal filed by Krishna Park resident Karnail Chand who had given a representation to L-G in 2012 pointing out tax fraud in South Delhi Municipal Corporation seeking details of steps taken by L-G over it.
Chand even sent the representations to Chief Minister’s office. Since there were differences between LG office and CM’s office the result of the representations were pending. The application was sent to various authorities but no reply was received. As a result the commission summoned secretary to Lieutenant Governor.
The Information Commissioner Mr Acharyulu said ”The Commission notices that L-G office has simply forwarded the representation of the appellant to South Delhi Municipal Corporation without completing their action. In fact, the request for information was what action has been taken by the LG office regarding the scandals and the PIO has simply transferred it to South Delhi Municipal Corporation. It is against the application of mind.”
