Right To Information But No Right To Complain ?
In the ICU at a Jaipur hospital lies a 65-year-old RTI applicant,Dudhram from Bikaner, Rajasthan with multiple fractures. He was beten up by the supporters and relatives of Current Sarpanch of Somalsar Village in his attempt to unearth the corruption in MNREGA work. Amazingly, there have been no arrests so far even after FIR has been lodged against 10 people invloved in the crime.The Right to Information activist, Dudhram had complained to the Anti Corruption Bureau about the allocation of Rs 4 crore for clearing sand and that led to the incident.
Well, what is the point of Right To Information Act if pointing out follies and intentional-manupulation by the administration would lead to hospitalization while the accused would not be held for the crime ?
