CIC orders MHA to respond to RTI query on Sonia Gandhi's citizenship
The Central Information Commission has directed the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to respond to an RTI applicant seeking details of Sonia Gandhi's Indian citizenship.
The RTI applicant from Ujjain had approached the external affairs ministry seeking details of acquisition of Indian citizenship by foreign nationals including Gandhi.
He had also demanded her citizenship application, certified copies of supporting documents, notification, order, rules, correspondence pertaining to Gandhi's Indian citizenship, and notesheets of the verification process.
Though the matter was transferred to the home ministry by the external affairs ministry, the former did not respond to the query.
