Whispers Forum


Ghulam Nabi Azad: A respected leader and a staunch Congressman can also be party high command's choice for the top post. However, political analysts suggest that the grand old party may not want to appoint a Muslim party president.

K Maheshwari





Congress party should start from the scratch (zero).  New and fighter regional leaders should raised the party with new vigour and let the national leader come from the ground(state leader) It has lost its base in most of the states, It has no proper leadership in many states and is out of power for decades in Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Gujarat. Present high command has no sa. Even party leaders are raising voice against its leadership. It will be a great help, if Gandhis say goodbye to the party.

Ajay Chaturvedi, Delhi




Congress is a divided party. Even Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has no neck to pull the party. Its a bad luck that the party is not able to select a new president for the last two years. It will be appropriate to say that the party is in wind up mode.

Responsibility of Nodal PIO

The appellant sought to know about the movement of his complaint to DDA and the action taken on it. The CIC observed that till date no information has been provided to the appellant on his RTI application dated 26.08.2018. Instead of transferring the RTI application to one specific PIO, the Nodal PIO had transferred the same to numerous PIOs within the public authority without application of mind. The CIC expressed its anguish observing that the RTI Act is clearly violated by the hands of the DDA and the PIOs are handling the RTI application with lackadaisical approach. A notice was issued to the then PIO, Commercial Land branch to show-cause as to why penalty should not be imposed on him for contravening the provisions of the RTI Act by not giving any reply to the appellant on his RTI application within the stipulated period of time as per the provisions of the RTI Act. The CIC advised the Vice Chairman, DDA to look into the style of work in the RTI cell and what methods are being adopted by the Nodal PIO regarding the disposal of RTI applications.


The PIO is only a communicator of information based on the records held in the office and hence, he cannot be expected to do research work to deduce anything from the material therein and then supply it to the RTI Applicant. However, the Nodal PIO should analyze the RTI application properly and then transfer the same to the specific PIO. One RTI application should not lead to multiple appeals just because of indiscriminate transfer of RTI Application.
