Govt has no info about foreign tours of Sonia GandhiNovember 08, 2011 17:32
A story that illustrates, yet again, how important an RTI application is. No government department seems to have any information about the tours and travels undertaken by the UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi as an RTI application kept moving to different ministries without any substantial response.
The case relates to an RTI application filed by one Kailash Kanwar of Bhilwara in Rajasthan who sought to know about the foreign visits undertaken by the UPA and National Advisory Council Chairperson during the last two years.
Recently, Pranab Mukherjee had said that the Finance Ministry letter to the Prime Minister's Secretariat on P Chidambaram's 'involvement' in the 2G scam is out in the open only due to the Right to Information Act.
