Gujarat govt not giving info on Modi's travel bills: RTI Activist
FONT SIZE

Ahmedabad, Oct 3: In a huge embarrassment to Narendra Modi who has been raising questions on the expenditure on foreign travels of Sonia Gandhi, an RTI activist in Gujarat has accused the state government of not providing details on the travel bills of the Chief Minister and his ministers for the last five years.
 


Vadodara-based RTI activist Trupti Shah has sent a letter to Modi, saying information about his and his Ministers’ travel-related expenses, mostly by helicopter, during ‘women empowerment sammelans’ had not been provided till date. 

Shah said she had filed a Right to Information (RTI) application on July 18, 2007 seeking details about the expenses incurred by the state government for organising the sammelans in 27 places across the state in 2007.
 
“The Chief Minister had organised women empowerment sammelans in 27 places in Gujarat in 2007 just before the assembly polls and I have asked under RTI about expenses of this sammelan particularly because the women of Gujarat are asking for implementation of Domestic Violence Act and appointment of protections officers which have been denied due to lack of funds,” she said.

Shah alleged she was denied the information even after repeated reminders. She said the state’s General Administrative Department (GAD), in a letter dated November 1, 2007, provided the list of 27 places visited by Modi from March 10, 2007 to September 20, 2007.
