The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Bhopal: A ques­tion in the Mad­hya Pradesh Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (MPPSC) pre­lims pa­per ask­ing can­di­dates their views on “wrong in­ten­tions” of RTI ac­tivists has drawn flak from the ad­vo­cates of the sun­shine law. Terming the ques­tion as “im­proper”, the ac­tivists have said the in­ten­tion of an ap­pli­cant seek­ing in­for­ma­tion un­der RTI can­not be ques­tioned. The ques­tion reads: “If you are a govern­ment of­fi­cer and the in­for­ma­tion un­der the RTI Act is be­ing sought from you. And, you know the ap­pli­cant well and as­sured that the in­for­ma­tion can be mis­used. What would you do?” —
