I'm at a iconic Dhaba on GT Road...sharing the table with a Businessman from UP on his way to Punjab and a Retired Army Officer...its Dal Tadka ... Crisp Rotis...Salad... and Salted Lassi

UP Businessman: Have any of you tried Tunday Kebabs (on getting a negative response from the Retired Fauji and me)... oddly its been made into a Political issue will the Nation's Policies be judged by gastronomic priorities..and by the way I feel these are grossly overrated Kebabs....
Me: It's sad... Pseudos bring up the stupidest excuses to damn any Policy this Government makes..maybe Pseudos tried to make this look like Dadri ...but it flopped....
UPB: You will be surprised to learn there is actually only ONE Legit slaughter house in UP (as per Green Tribunal) for all you know the Tunday Meat is unethically sourced!
Retired Fauji: Just one Legit Slaughter House....and during a road trip from Lucknow to Kanpur I remember I had noticed many Refrigerated Container Trucks ....the Hired Car Driver on my enquiring had told me these trucks were ferrying meat ..unlicensed means no controls or quality checks...
M: So there is a huge clandestine business in Bones...linked to Sugar.....fat... linked to cooking oil ...I even hear as its all hush-hush animals are boiled alive so that the hides come off easily ...
LBM: Its the best kept secret of UP.... by the way Licensed Slaughter Houses are supposed to maintain Video records. SP ..BSP just turned face the other way and during their stints allowed the illegal Slaughter Houses to thrive....
F: When in power they are a law unto themselves see how this Sena MP has behaved with an AI Staffer..
LBM: And the victim was 60 ...this MP must be in his 40s respect for age too ..
F: Sena as usual will brazen it out... they cannot afford to loose their Gunda tag ..its their USP... Unique Scaring Proposition...
M: But see the trust Public has in Modi ...and their ability to communicate with him.....the AI Staffer had warned the errant MP that he'd complain to Modi....
RF: In fact this aggravated this errant MP more..
LBM: Blanket ban on this MP by Airlines from travelling on their Aircrafts...let him use surface transport...
F: Knowing Sena they'd threaten and arm twist the Airlines and create problems for Flights operating out of Mumbai..SOP...Standard Oppression Pranks..
M: The Lal Bathi is actually in the psyche of those in power.
RF: And a Politician who forsakes the Lal Bathi is ridiculed by his lot ...though he actually is able not only to perform his duties better but incognito ..he's able to learn more about what all is going on..
M: Punjab FM ...he refused Official Car and Security and was able to film a Cop taking bribes ...khulam-khulla..but I am sure efforts will be on to dissuade him from his pledge ...the mindset of those dissuading would be ...Minister bann ke if you give up Security and Lal Bathi....its like sparing the rod and spoiling the Voter ..they feel we respect them for their nuisance value..more the nuisance more their value...

Non-receipt of RTI application sent by registered post

The RTI application was sent through Registered post and the same was delivered in the respondent organization. However, the respondent claimed that the RTI application was not received and hence, no reply within the stipulated time could be provided to the appellant. To ascertain the facts leading to the misplacement of the RTI application filed by the appellant, the CIC directed the FAA, Ministry of Home Affairs to inquire into the matter of the 'missing' RTI application and to ascertain as to whether the RTI application was actually misplaced or the CPIO had taken that plea to deny information to the appellant. The FAA was directed to take appropriate departmental action against the officers/officials responsible for the misplacement of the RTI application, if required. A copy of the inquiry report along with the action taken report was directed to be provided to the Commission as well as to the appellant within a period of six weeks. Further, a compensation of Rs. 2,500/- was granted to the appellant. The CIC also observed that the First Appellate Authority should give an opportunity of hearing to any Appellant if the Appellant expressly wants to be heard.
