“But the concerned Xen R&B Kupwara Gurdev Singh, has failed to provide information within time period, said RTI activist, adding, “The delay itself indicates that there is something wrong in the R&B Department Kupwara division about tenders.”
The RTI activist has appealed Governor of J&K State “Satya Pal Malik” to intervene in the matter and demanded strict action against Xen R&B department division Kupwara for not providing information under RTI act 2009.
