RTI activists have asked information on the amount spent for the swearing-in ceremony of the Maha Vikas Aghadi Govt. but haven’t got any accurate figure.

New Delhi| The Maharashtra government has failed to provide accurate information about the amount that was spent on the oath-taking of the Thackeray Sarkaar in Maharashtra and there has been a discrepancy in the various information RTI application submitted in this regard.
While one activist Anil Galgali of Saki Naka was told that the total expenditure has been 2 crore 79 lakhs by the Section officer RR Gaikwad another activist Ajay Bose of Sion was told that the total expenditure was 4 crore 63 lakhs, by the same officer.

“There is a big difference between these figures. Why is the public information officer interested in giving half information?” Activist Anil Galgali said.
According to Anil Galgali, the expenditure on oath is from the exchequer money so accurate information and accurate statistics should be published on the website of the Maharashtra Government under Section 4 of the Right to Information Act 2005.
Also, in view of the discrepancy in the information, one who has deliberately attempted to hide the information and expenditure figures, needs to be punished Galgali demanded.
