KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said that right to information is a fundamental feature of democracy.

Prime Minister Oli said that use of right to information would contribute to build a sound society while receiving a report on works performed by the incumbent leadership of National Information Commission today.

He said all should know that information regarding the issues related to national sovereignty, integrity and national interest as well as issues related to crime and terrorism, which were under investigation, could not be provided, directing the Commission to suggest a proper way to provide information.

“It is necessary to pay attention to the time and situation as well while implementing the right to information and disseminating information,” PM Oli said.

He also called one and all to involve in the campaign of national development with determination.

On the occasion, Commission Chairman Krishna Hari Banskota informed that in response to the complaints related to implementation of right to information filed at the Commission so far since its establishment, 1,747 directives were issued.

Banskota said that the Commission issued 940 directives in the past one year and stressed the need of adding the word ‘information disclosure’ during amendment to the new Constitution as this wording was not incorporated in the historic charter.

Commission members Kiran Pokharel and Yashoda Adhikari and Secretary Sharadraj Bista also expressed their views on the occasion.
