Info on Maha CM's relief fund to be public
Embarrassed by the unprecedented row over the lack of transparency in the disbursement of the CM's Relief Fund, Maharashtra CM Vilasrao Deshmukh has said that all information on the subject would be made public. "We had not parted with specific details under the RTI since we had not given those even to the legislature," he said. "However, I have now given instructions to my office to provide all the information to the people." The move is viewed as a major victory for RTI activist Shailesh Gandhi who had first sought such information from Deshmukh's office in 2005.
