‘PDP, NC should clarify opposition to RTI applicability in J&K Bank’

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Nov 30: J&K RTI Movement has expressed dissatisfaction over the Governments silence on its decision to convert J&K Bank into a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU).
In a handout the RTI Movement said that till date no formal orders have been issued in this regard and that is adding to the confusion among people.
“People are not able to understand what kind of PSU will J&K Bank be? Will it be like a State PSU or the one like central banks that already are PSUs under Govt of India?” asked Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat Chairman RTI Movement.
He also said that bringing J&K Bank under RTI law ambit is a very wise decision taken by State Administrative Council (SAC) and expressed the hope that J&K Bank authorities will act as public authority within the meaning of said law and provide information to the public under the act by designating Public Information Officers.
“We need clarification from local political parties like PDP and National Conference vis-à-vis their stand on applicability of RTI in J&K Bank. Both these parties are protesting against SAC’s decision but they have not thrown light over the issues they are protesting against,” he maintained.
