Shillong: RTI activist especially in seeking information about vacancies that have not been announced by the State Government in the past few years, Disparsing Rani said that talks have been going on amongst the public in general of alleged rampant underhand appointments by politicians in the Health Department especially in East Khasi Hills District.
Speaking with Disparsing Rani, he said that through the filing of an RTI, at no cost can such underhand appointments be hidden and the answers that he awaits once received will clearly reveal how much truth is in the talks of the general public.
Rani expresses that by seeking information and working hard, he from his end perhaps may bring out everything in the open as in the RTI he has filed with this government department it will show clearly, through the correction list, the first day of employment of the appointees or the joining report to which will also be added the regularisation or confirmation dates which will be revealed clearly in this RTI which he has filed and the report of which he awaits from this department.
It is through the filing of an RTI that Rani has expressed that at no cost will these underhand appointees of politicians succeed in hiding this.
It is based on this objective that Rani feels the need to say that if this underhand work is reveal through the RTI, this will stop higher officials henceforth to never listen or obey politicians for if they continue to comply or submit to the whims of politicians, they will land themselves in trouble instead.
As an example Rani showed also an appointment letter that has to be issued by an officer and not a politician.
