RTI Application Reveals truth Indian Politicians, MPs, MLAs
have no duties and responsibilities

As a Citizen of India
Do you know what are the duties and responsibilities of Indian Elected MPs, MLAs or in simple language say Politician?

Indian Politicians have no duty and no responsibility and no accountability.

RTI applications were filed in the central government and state assemblies and after getting the replies it is now clear that there are no duties and responsibilities for elected representatives of the people.

February 2, 2009 -
Activist Dev Ashish Bhattacharya filed RTI application with the Election Commission seeking details of duties, responsibilities and accountability of MPs and MLAs.

Election Commission replied that it was "not concerned with information sought" and it had no such information.

Then appeal was filed.

The commission's appellate authority ruled that the query should have been transferred to the ministry of parliamentary affairs and ministry of law and justice.

June 3, 2009

Lok Sabha secretariat replied that there is no provision either in the Constitution or the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in Lok Sabha defining duties and responsibilities of members of Parliament or through which the accountability can be fixed on non-performing MPs".

Hello SM! Thank you for stopping by our Paree blog and leaving a comment.

I find your blog most interesting although I know nothing of Indian politics. If Indian politics are like American politics, you've got lots of rotten people in government who are corrupt and care nothing except to become rich and take care of the rich!

Best wishes!

has any one read a book on 'constitution making' written by a professor of Allahabad university? it gives details of how our constitution assembly passed the bill in the parliament and has a chapter on emergency to be declared by government. This book is an eye opener for all citizens of this country

I Agree, But MP's & MLA's are responsible for passing Bills and policy in Parliament and Assembly. Without them its not possible for making important decisions as per Indian Constitution.

@Anand Mallige

its not compulsory and they can pass the law which they like
Eg. Shahbano Case.
