CIC calls for releasing information spontaneously
HABIGANJ, June 08, 2023 (BSS) - Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) Dr. Abdul Malek today urged concerned authorities to release information spontaneously to ensure free flow of information.
“The present government passed the Right to Information Act (RTI) in 2009 to ensure people’s right to information. This act is a pro-people one and the people can get their necessary information from different public and private institutions by using this act,” he said.
The chief information commissioner came up with the observations while addressing a training workshop on RTI and mass-apprising meeting as chief guest at Madhabpur upazila in Habiganj.
Dr. Malek at the function emphasized on free flow of correct information, adding, this will ensure transparency and accountability in all the stages of state mechanism.
Presided over by Habiganj deputy commissioner Israt Jahan, the function was attended by government officials, people’s representatives, journalists, teachers and NGO representatives, among others.
