    Information given under RTI wrong, says MLA
    Express News Service Posted online: Saturday , May 10, 2008

    Ambala, May 09 Former Ambala Cantonment MLA Anil Vij, alleged that
    information supplied to him by the executive officer of the Ambala
    Sadar Municipal Council under the Right to Information Act, 2005, was
    wrong and misleading. He had sought information regarding a plot of
    land Survey Number 178 (Building Number 180-180/1-13) Minerva
    Complex Rai Market, Ambala Cantonment from the state public
    information officer/estate officer, Ambala Sadar.

    The MLA alleged that the information issued did not answer the
    questions raised by him in his application. "Instead, the MC
    authorities have twisted the information provided with regard to the
    present status of the Minerva Complex, which has been sublet by
    reconstructing a huge multi-storeyed building rented out for lakhs of
    rupees per month," said Vij.

    The issue was also raised by councillors in the general body meeting
    of the MC on Thursday. They demanded that the erring official be
    brought to book under the RTI Act. The executive officer said if the
    information was not to the satisfaction of the applicant, he should
    file a fresh application and additional information would be supplied.
