    Default Seeking justice via RTI Act


    Seeking justice via RTI Act
    Parents of teenager crushed under MC truck want information
    As reported by Puneet Pal Singh Gill in Tribune on dated 26 August 2011

    Soutce : http://www.tribuneindia.com/2011/20110827/ldh1.htm#12

    Making the right to information (RTI) Act a tool for seeking justice, parents of Abhishek Maingi, who died after being crushed under a Ludhiana municipal corporation (MC) garbage truck on August 6, have sought information under the Act about the details of the vehicle, its worthiness certificate issued by the transport department, details about the driver and other details from the MC.

    “Enough is enough. Many innocent people have lost their lives to MC garbage trucks. When I get this information, I will be able to present my point of view by suggesting some alternatives to the civic body as well as the state government. It will not only help society, but put a stop to such deaths, which are very unfortunate,” said Akhilesh’s father Lokesh Mohan Maingi.Lokesh prepared an RTI application, with 26 questions, which had been sent to the public information officer (headquarters) of the MC.

    “It is sad that people are being treated like animals in the city. Despite several deaths, the MC has failed to put brakes on this menace. Whenever someone dies in such incidents, MC officials come with a compensation cheque for Rs 2 lakh. Does they mean that the cost of a human life is Rs 2 lakh? It is shameful on their part,” rued Maingi.
    He pointed out that MC trucks ferries garbage from 10 pm to 5 am in some cities. “Why can the MC not fix these timings when it knows that traffic on roads will be comparatively less? Instead it fixes morning and afternoon hours, when a large number of people are using roads. That is why such incidents take place,” said Maingi, who had formed the NGO Akhilesh Maingi Welfare Society.
