RTI activists send legal notice to Prime Minister

A group of RTI activists have claimed to have sent a legal notice to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, seeking transparency in the selection procedure of the new Chief Information Commissioner (CIC). "As your office in particular and Government of India in general have not met this legal obligation, it is by this legal notice that I call upon you make the mandatory disclosures before proceeding with further appointments, so that further illegalities are not committed," a copy of the notice provided by Advocate Abdul Rasheed Qureshi on behalf of his client Krishna Rao said.

The notice dated November 26, 2009 by Rao was addressed to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Law Minister Veerappa Moily and Minister of Personnel Prithviraj Chavan. The same groups of activists have also filed a Public Interest Litigation in Delhi High Court seeking transparency in the selection process of the CIC which was quashed.
