Information about health condition of Chief Minister is denied under RTI

Information about health condition of Chief Minister is not disclosed by Office of Chief Minister, Odisha under RTI Act

Dear friends
In the first week of March, 2017,   Chief Minister Sri Nabin Patnaik gave a public statement that he was physically fit to run state administration which was highlighted by Media. Earlier, there was a lot of discussion in public domain (may be gossip) about terrible health condition of Chief Minister for which he is frequently visiting New Delhi for treatment. In my pursuit to get authenticated information about health condition of our beloved Chief Minister,  I filed RTI Application  dt. 4.3.17  to the PIO, Dept. of Parliamentary Affairs, Govt. of Odisha. The PIO sought the said information from the office of Chief Minister, Odisha. After obtaining the said information  supplied by Bishnu Prasad Mishra, Under Secretary, the  PIO has provided  the following  the information on 20.4.17.

Information sought for by Pradip Pradhan

Provide information about details of treatment undergoing Chief Minister of Odisha and name of the doctor examining and treating Chief Minister.
This information sought for does not come under purview of definition of RTI Act

This information sought for does not come under purview of definition of RTI Act
iii. Provide information about details of expenditure made towards treatment and medical reimbursement  against treatment of Chief Minister  from Jan 2014 to Feb. 2017.

iv. Provide information  about other expenses made under different heads   which  has been borne from state exchequer   for Chief Minister  from  Jan. 2014 to Feb. 2016.

The Applicant has not sought what exact information he requires. So it can not be provided

Comments

A.    On point No. 1, 2 and 4, the PIO has tried to avoid to provide the iformation. The PIO with malafide intention denied to provide the information.

B.     First appeal petition will be filed  to the First Appellate Authority, Department of Parliamentary Affairs to get the complete information.
