RTI throws light on spending by Delhi & Uttarakhand CMs

Recommended Posts

In an evidence of politicians inviting greater public scrutiny now than ever before, two applications under the Right to Information Act have surfaced regarding some miscellaneous expenditure by the chief ministers of Delhi and Uttarakhand.


Filed by RTI activists, the applications sought to know the expenditure incurred by the CMs on refreshment served at their offices and official residences. In the case of Delhi, expenditure on medical reimbursement and petrol/maintenance of the official vehicle was also sought.


The Delhi government has informed RTI activist Rohit Chaudhary that office of the Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, spent a total of Rs 1.03 crore on refreshment across a period of 34 months. The time-line stretches from 14 February, 2015 – when Kejriwal assumed office – to December 2017.


In Uttarakhand, office of CM Trivendra Rawat has spent a total of Rs 68,59,865 on refreshments ever since Rawat assumed office on 18 March 2017. Thats an average of Rs 6.23 lakhs a month.

      BBMP (Municipal council of Bangalore) does not take either postal or Online R.T.I queries.
      Since there is no accountability, the roads are in disarray and no action has been taken. Now with this covid19 pandemic, these fellows are just sitting and eating peanuts.
      Several compliant either to the BBMP app, P.M.O office or the local M.L.A/MP have fallen on deaf ears.
      Has anyone succeeded in resolving roads via the R.T.I route or some other route?

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.
