A daring attempt by Government of Tamil Nadu to stifle RTI freedom sign now

In an another daring attempt to stifle RTI activism in the nation, the top brass of the state of Tamil Nadu has surreptiously re-sworn in the retired former Chief Secretary K. S. Sripathy as the Chief Information Commissioner. The salient features of this selection are:

(1) Overlooking of all RTI norms
(2) Not just missing transparency or even translucency but a kind of complete opacity to all RTI procedures

The only qualification Sripathy holds to being a CIO is that he is a close accomplice of the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu (Mr. Muthuvel Karunanidhi) and his sympathizer. The humble peaceful protests of RTI activists have been stifled with iron hands by the cops of Chennai (vide news source http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/new-tamil-nadu-rti-chief-sparks-controversy-48758)

Let us voice our opinion in solidarity to get the Union Government to look into the issue and bring the offenders to book.
