After a week of unsuccessful attempts at calling MP’s and some very good tweets to the MP’s, the PMO office about the need to appoint CIC, I finally managed to talk to 3 BJP MP’s, the others (Bandaru Dattatreya, Meenakshi Lekhi) didn’t pick up the phone.
I introduced myself as a volunteer with Save RTI campaign
Mr Yeddyurappa: I didn’t know about CIC and I would need to find out and get back.
Me: i asked a follow up question, half way through, the phone was hung up.
Mr Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi: The process to appoint the CIC is underway.
Me: By when do you think the CIC would be appointed
Mr Naqvi: The process is underway and the central government is looking into this
Mr Bhupendra Yadav: Tell me, how can I help you
Me: Sir, why hasn’t the CIC been appointed yet
Mr Yadav: Where?
Me: Sir, in India
Mr Yadav: Oh, i don’t know anything about it
Me: Surprised but not shocked and the phone was hung up
