LUCKNOW || As per the information provided by the Prime Minister office (PMO) to Lucknow-based activist Nutan Thakur, the PMO has no information at all about various dream projects of PM Narendra Modi.
Nutan had sought information about coining of the words Namami Gange, Swaccha Bharat, Make in India, Ayushman Bharat and Beti Bachao Beti Padhao and the initiation of these projects.
To this, CPIO of PMO Parveen Kumar replied that the PMO has no information on these matters. He also refused to transfer these RTI applications to the concerned Ministries.
When the matter was heard by the Central Information Commission, Nutan said that it is not possible for the PMO to have no information on these dream projects of Modi, while the CPIO alleged that Nutan was misusing the provisions of RTI to seek such information.
Rejecting the CPIO’s arguments, Chief Information Commissioner Sudhir Bhargava counselled him to be more careful in future and directed him to transfer the RTI application to the concerned public authority within a period of two weeks.
