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 ?”.

Married ones are better rulers and not the bachelors because the former understand the feelings and sentiments of the people better. Bachelors don’t have an idea of how difficult it is to run the family and are thus, in many cases, heartless.

Claiming charges despite the delay in replying

The Complainant pleaded that as the reply was delayed, the photocopying charges are not applicable. The PIO submitted that on 29.02.2020, the complainant was given all the required information free of cost who submitted an undertaking that he is satisfied with the information. The Complainant submitted before the CIC that he was forced to sign the undertaking stating his satisfaction. The CIC held that there is no ground to accept that the undertaking was signed under pressure. However, the PIO was issued a warning for not providing the documents free of cost on time and claiming charges despite the delay in replying.

Comments

As per Section 7 (6) of the RTI Act, the person making request for the information shall be provided the information free of charge where a public authority fails to comply with the prescribed time limits. A PIO must ensure timely disbursal of information
