Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 23: Dismayed over the refusal of the Assembly secretariat to provide the property details of a BJP MLA under RTI, Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister today ridiculed the govt for making the most contemptuous mockery of the slogans of good governance, Accountability and Transparency. He said that the PIO, Assembly Secretariat in response to an RTI filed by him seeking the property statements of an MLA from January 2015 onwards has stated that the information pertained to third party and hence could not be provided without the consent of the MLA. Describing the reply as highly opprobrious and violation of RTI Act, he lampooned the desperate move of the concerned to conceal the information regarding assets raised by the legislator after having assumed public office. He said that never before had such kind of reply been given by the Assembly secretariat with regard to disclosure of assets raised by legislators during their respective tenures. He said that erstwhile MLAs had not only put their assets in public domain but the public was having full access into their property details which were provided by the Assembly secretariat without any hitch or seeking consent of members. Have the rules been changed with regard to disclosure of assets by public men after the takeover of Govt by BJP-PDP, questioned Harsh while flaying the concerned authorities refusing to divulge the information sought under RTI. The most astonishing was the statement of Secretary Assembly to whose notice the denial of reply by the concerned PIO was brought by him, said Harsh. "Go and file appeal if you are not satisfied with the reply" was the response of the secretary Assembly revealed Harsh.
