DEBATE

Only single politician is full time ?

Unmarried politicians are not uncommon in the Indian political scene. In many circles it is often said that such politicians tend to fare better as they come with no baggage or compulsions. In present era of nepotism in politics, the people too have generally shown an inclination towards unmarried politicians.

 Few people, in a chit-chat, were also convinced that only unmarried politicians can work overtime in the politics and do wonders without corruption. Examples cited were of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, UP CM Aditya Nath Yogi, Odisha CM Navin Patnaik and Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar. One interesting remark came “Why not Rahul Gandhi ?”.

DATE WITH RTI

Ground for getting employment

Daughter of Late Lakshmi Kanta Bhakta and Sumati Rani Bhakta sought to know on what ground her mother got employment in the life time of her father. The applicant submitted that her father was mentally not well and therefore her mother was given employment and there is a dispute regarding landed property among the legal heirs. Therefore, she is entitled to receive the information.  The information with regard to appointment of Smt. Sumati Rani Bhakta was denied u/s 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. The CIC held that the appellant failed to demonstrate any larger public interest, the reply of the CPIO is accepted and no further action is called for.

Comments

It is not uncommon to see RTI applications being filed to settle scores in cases of personal animosity. However, irrespective of the purpose, personal information cannot be provided unless there is a larger public interest..
