Submitted by alvin on Tue, 2016-10-25 14:53 Bengaluru: RTI activists – on Tuesday – protested demanding immediate appointment of Lokayukta in the state in front of Lokayukta office.The protesters observed that for the past eleven months, Lokayukta has remained a headless institution in the state. Yet, the government has not bothered to appoint one. This has resulted in piling up of huge complaints, said Wing Commander (retired) GB Athri.Although the institution has two Upa Lokayuktas, complaints are not being addressed. They are even denying information under the RTI, he complained. He urged the state government to appoint a Lokayukta, immediately.
