Will Centre delay Central Vista project to offset people’s anger over Covid surge ?

Grapevine has it that to offset the people’s anger due to surge in Covid- 19 cases and alleged mismanagement, the Union government may go slow over the implementation of the Central Vista redevelopment project, which has come under intense criticism for spending a huge amount of money at a time when the country was battling a raging pandemic. Barring two ongoing projects, New Parliament Building and Central Vista Avenue (Rajpath), the Centre may, sources in the Urban Affairs Ministry said, slow down the execution of remaining projects in the Central Vista Redevelopment Scheme.

 

 

 

Two newly elected West Bengal BJP MLAs may quit

Two BJP parliamentarians who won their seats in the just-concluded Bengal Assembly polls are likely to resign from the legislative Assembly. The BJP had fielded four Lok Sabha MPs of which only two won. Now, in BJP’s scheme of things, insiders say, losing two Assembly seats will not make any difference in its status in the Assembly.  However, when the next Lok Sabha polls are held, the party would like to go ahead with all the 19 Lok Sabha seats it has in its kitty and thus the decision to make them resign.

 

 

 


DEBATE

Is it justified to allow gatherings at political rallies and religious functions amidst Covid surge ?

Even as Covid cases continue to surge across the country, how far it is justified for the ‘powers that be’ to ignore implementation of Corona norms (restrictions) at political rallies in the poll bound states and religious functions ? Does the deadly virus becomes ineffective at such gatherings ?

DEBATE

It was not at all justified to hold political rallies and religious gatherings when the Corona pandemic was staring at us. Kumbha Mela could also have been held symbolically. The government could have allowed only the priests and the ‘Akharaas’ if they insisted and stopped general public from participating in the Kumbha. But large religious gatherings at the Kumbh Mela and politicians, cutting across party lines, have been addressing huge rallies. Now the second wave has hit us so severely only because of our stupidity.

No one is interested in improving things

Fully agree with B B Shrivastava. No Politician or Bureaucrat(s) is interested in improving things. They benefit from Status-Quo and take no action. Hope the Government(s) take note of the recommendations and take immediate action to prevent chaos in future.

DATE WITH RTI

Home Loan

Appellant had taken a home loan and asked the Bank why there is a difference of amount between OS (Outstanding Amount) and DP (Drawing Power) and a related question.  The PIO informed that difference in drawing power and outstanding amount occurred on account of interest accrual over a period of time due to delayed repayment or due to interest rate change. The CIC directed the PIO to revisit the RTI application and provide revised information including copy of the calculation sheet of the appellant’s loan account.

Comments

The RTI Act includes providing the existing information and does not involve creating information. A citizen cannot expect a PIO to create a fresh information to satisfy his query.
