    `RTI Act will help alleviate poverty'


    KOLLAM: P. Fazaluddin, State Information Commissioner, has said that the revolution evolving through the Right to Information Act will help towards poverty alleviation. He was addressing an awareness workshop on the Right to Information Act organised by the State Information Commission and the District Literacy Mission here on Friday.

    Mr. Fazaluddin said that the freedom to ask and the right to know form the basis of any democracy. Until the enactment of the Right to Information Act, the media performed that duty. When the people's money reached the exchequer, they also have a right to know how it was being utilised, he said.

    Transparency in fund utilisation will end corruption and work towards poverty alleviation, he said.

    The workshop was inaugurated by District Panchayat president K. Devaki.
    Director of the State Literacy Mission M. Jayadevan delivered the keynote address. He said that the Literacy Mission can play a big role in spreading awareness on the Right to Information Act.
    District Coordinator of the Literacy Mission S.P. Hariharan Unnithan also addressed the function
