Invoke section 17 of RTI act to remove Tiwari

City-based non-governmental organisations on Wednesday sent a letter to chief minister Prithviraj Chavan saying that the state should make a recommendation to the governor to invoke section 17 (3) (e) of the Right to Information Act (RTI) 2005 removing Ramanand Tiwari from the post of state information commissioner. The letter was sent by Sajag Nagrik Manch president Vivek Velankar, Surajya Sangharsha Samiti president Vijay Kumbhar, RTI activist Vihar Durve and Nagrik Chetana Manch president Maj Gen (retd) S C N Jatar. It was sent following media reports that Tiwari was not tendering his resignation, despite being asked to do so by the government, on account of his alleged involvement in the Adarsh society scam. Tiwari, whose son had got membership in Adarsh, was the urban development secretary and was directly dealing with the Adarsh proposal.
