    Default Sangma uses RTI to get details on use of MLA funds


    With only six months left for the Assembly election in Meghalaya, former Lok Sabha Speaker and NCP leader Purno A Sangma has used the Right to Information Act to get details of the utilisation of MLA funds by the West Garo Hills district legislators. He has obtained information about schemes under 15 legislators, including those of the NCP.

    In a release issue here, Sangma said, "I am examining details of utilisation of funds for different schemes including CGI sheets, land development schemes, RCC culverts, ring wells, footpaths, community halls and purchase of vehicles."

    Last year, Sangma had unearthed a scam in the rural innovative housing scheme in Garo Hills that led to the resignation of Community and Rural Development Minister Beckstar Sangma. An FIR was filed in the case and some Block Development Officers were arrested. Beckstar Sangma surrendered to the police and was later released on bail.
    West Garo Hills Additional Deputy Commissioner F C A Sangma said, "We have supplied most of the information he sought and he must be satisfied as he has not come back to us." The details have been provided along with the amount allocated for the schemes and names of the agencies responsible for their implementation .

    Seems RTI is in vogue among politicians as well.
