The third National Campaign for People’s Right to Information (NCPRTI) will be held in Meghalaya’s state capital from March 10 to 11.
The Meghalaya Right to Information Movement (MRTIM) has offered to host the event. The third NCPRI RTI convention comes after 5 years of use of the RTI which has empowered us all in varying degrees. “The interaction will provide an important opportunity for all of us to share our wide and rich experiences in the use of this law for varied rights of people in a democracy, and plan the way forward,” MRTIM Chairman Michael N. Syiem said.
The MRTIM, he said, plans to invite an organization or campaign with expertise in the concerned area to help design and co-ordinate each workshop, and to choose and invite key resource persons.
“Each workshop will focus on a set of questions that will connect the theme to the RTI and consequent democratic action. We hope that the convention comes up with land mark resolution,” Syiem said. Meanwhile, MRTIM member and leading women rights activist, Angela Rangad said that the convention would be a collection of people sharing the same anxiety.
