RTI Day marked

By Our Reporter
The Right to Information Day was marked this week by organising various programmes in Kathmandu.
In his message issued on the occasion of National Information Day, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli urged all government agencies to respect the citizen’s right to information as per the spirit of the Constitution.
Prime Minister Oli also urged the citizens to utilise their constitutional right to information by following the due legal procedure.
Oli said the government was of the view that the common people must have easy access to information regarding public importance to make the state organs accountable to them.
He also said that the government was moving ahead with good governance on the basis of transparency, control of corruption, rule of law and culture of accountability.
Addressing a programme organised to mark National Information Day-2075 by the National Information Commission (NIC) on Sunday, PM Oli refuted the allegations that the government was trying to snatch the right to information of the people through the new country code.
On a different note, he said that the Constitution would not be amended at any time on the pretext that the government had a two-thirds majority in the parliament.
