I am attaching herewith all the documents related to my RTI application which I had submitted with the Prime Minister’s office few months before. I had requested the PMO to furnish the information regarding the number of persons who have made formal request with the PMO/PM to have appointment with the prime minister. The PMO have completely denied to furnish information taking the extremely surprising ground that the furnishing of this information may threaten the sovereignty and integrity of the nation. It further claimed that many persons who meets the PM want it to be kept secret. The PMO said that this information is an exempted information under section 8(1) and section 11 of the RTI Act. The full information may be viewed by downloading the documents which I am attaching herewith.
unfortunate era for all the rights-based laws
This is indeed an unfortunate era for all the rights-based laws.
