Former officer goes for dharna after denial of information under RTI
An application was filed by a former district welfare officer Rinku Singh Rahi under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking details of fund not used by the department in 2008-09. As he didn’t get the reply from the district welfare department, Rahi has staged a dharna against the denial of information.
Rahi had staged a dharna previous year also alleging a multi crore scam in the social welfare department. The dharna led to an order from the government for initiating an enquiry into the alleged scam. Already cases against some officers have been registered in this regard.
Apart from this Rahi has also been attacked in connection with an order for an enquiry into the fund allocation to the district office issued by him in capacity as the social welfare officer of Muzaffarnagar.
