Odisha CM read only works of Mahatma Gandhi !

Shri Naveen Patnaik, MLA and Chief Minister of Odisha loves to read only Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, exposed through RTI


Shri Naveen  Patnaik, MLA  has taken only few  books on Collected  Works of Mahatma Gandhi   in the month of  Feb. and March 2012  within period of 10 years of his tenure as Chief Minister of Odisha from the  Odisha Legislative Assembly Library,   the information provided  by  PIO, Odisha Legislative Assembly  in response to RTI query  on 1.7.15.

RTI Application was submitted  to the PIO, Office of OLA   to get the information about use of Library by the MLAs of Odisha from the period of 2004-2014. It deserves to be mentioned here that  Library  has been set up in Assembly   to provide an opportunity to  the MLAs, MPs, former MLAs and MPs to get the books , reports, periodicals, records etc. for their study  and research, enrich  their  knowledge  about  laws, policies, Manuals,  assembly deliberation, Odisha History, culture, linguistic movement, Laws and regulations, women and crime, Indian Constitutions, administration, Land reform etc. The objective behind setting of library is to give inputs to the MLAs to make them efficient, knowledgeable and dynamic policy makers in the state.

As per norms fixed by Library, MLAs are required to make requisition of the books, periodicals, reports etc.  and take it for their study. Permission is also granted by Secretary, OLA  to the staff of  the members of the assembly  and bonafide  research  scholar   for use of library, if he is satisfied  that  a particular person  is actually  required to assist  a member  for collecting  the  information  which may help him  in the efficient discharge  of his duties  as a member.      

RTI Query  was made  to have an idea  how many MLAs  have really used  Library  and taken books, reports, records, materials   for their study,  discussion  or deliberation  on different issues, policy matters  in assembly  or outside assembly.  It  is widely felt  that  the performance  of the  MLAs are  very poor  and kind of deliberation and  discussion  in assembly  witnessed  very  low standard. The participation of the MLAs in the debate   on Laws and policies   in the assembly is not encouraging.

The information obtained through RTI exposes that   48 out of 147 MLAs have used library and obtained books from Library within last ten years. It means 99 MLAs have never taken any books, reports, periodicals from Library.

Sri Naveen Patnaik has made requisition of the following books from the Assembly Library.

 Comments-
A.     Shri Naveen Patnaik has taken only Books on Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi. It means he does not like to read any reports, documents on laws, policies, Manuals or  he might be well-versed with these laws and policies like forest law, land related laws,  assembly deliberations, socio-economic-cultural history of Odisha. He might have enriched his knowledge and getting prepared to be guided by philosophy of  Mahatma Gandhi.    But  we hardly see it being reflected  in his career.
B.      It  has come to my notice that   the  books, reports  taken from Library by MLAs  are  not  for them  to read  but  for others  or relatives  on request.
C.      However, he MLAs  who have taken  books from Assembly Library are as follows
