    Follow up in e-samadhan was really poor during the term of Sh. Bhim Sen. His orders on this platform were ignored easily by the lower officials. His simplicity and non-controversial nature must not prove harmful to RTI movement in the state.
    During the term of Mr. Rana as CIS, the positive interpretations in RTI cases were citizen centric and in line with the basic objective of this Act. I hope the tradition will be carried effectively by taming the sarkari babus in state who are always in information-hiding mode.
