Sonia seeks 4 weeks from CIC to respond to notice

Sonia seeks 4 weeks from CIC to respond to notice
Citing Delhi elections, Gandhi said despite best efforts, she could not prepare the reply to the present complaint within the timeframe.

In her submission filed through her lawyer, Gandhi said she was in the process of seeking legal advice and preparing appropriate response to be filed before the Commission which is expected to be ready within four weeks. “The request for extension of time has been necessitated by reasons beyond the respondents’ control. The application is made bona fide and in the interest of justice,” her lawyer said in the submission before the Commission.

The CIC had issued notices to Gandhi asking her to explain why her party has not complied with the directives of a panel about responding to RTI queries and not replying to an RTI plea filed last year.
Similar notices were issued by the CIC in separate cases to BJP as well but its chief Amit Shah has also not responded.
