Information rush after showcause

The district administration of Dhubri organised a workshop yesterday to "inform" officialdom, the media and the public about the Right to Information Act.

Officers, journalists and members of NGOs participated in the workshop, conducted by election officer Animesh Talukdar and additional deputy commissioner Ranjeet Kalita at the District Rural Development Agency's conference hall. Talukdar explained the act in detail and answered questions from the participants.

Miah, who had been denied access to information regarding the implementation of rural development schemes in the district, immediately petitioned chief information commissioner Bhaskar Mushahary.
