This is absurd. Under Section 2(h)(d) of RTI Act, an authority constituted by an order of Govt is a 'public authority'. Does the PMO mean to say that PM CARES is not created by govt? Then it's highly problematic
'Judiciary must be sensitive to the problems of the citizens'
Dave: It is also important that the judiciary must become sensitive to the problems of the citizens. They are the watchdogs in our Constitution. But, with all due respect to the judiciary, they have not been doing that over the past 8 weeks or so.
Dave: It was important for the judges to realise that the citizens were helpless. The Govt. had foisted a decision upon the nation which prima facie appears to be completely arbitrary. Judges should have said, “Yes, do the lockdown. But, after 1 week or 10 days”.
What possible reason do you cowards have for this anymore? All that bravura and you're terrified of a woman who helps the underprivileged and fights for people's rights? Enough is enough.

Bhima Koregaon witnessed similar anti dalit rhetoric in India. Entire movement was reduced to "riot" and desi liberals now mourning systematic racial injustice didn't even care when activists like Anand Teltumbde were being arrested.

And then this government assaulted the civil liberties of women students, under cover of lockdown and manipulated media. Seek the release #SafooraZargar, Gulfisha, Devangana and Natasha now. Tomorrow it'll be your child.
A scathing indictment of SC:"A pattern which the SC had been following with respect to several petitions raising issues of migrant workers during lockdown;Of disposing PILs in a routine fashion solely on the basis of unverified claims made by the Executive https://www.livelaw.in/amp/columns/migrant-workers-cases-sc-failed-to-rise-to-the-occasion-156541?__twitter_impression=true
Three photos enough to leave all of us ashamed! Our conscience is dead and buried. A poor is left to fend for himself and his child in lockdown. But government sends a bureaucrat with cookies and food to ‘treat and greet’ a rich person’s dog who arrived from Uzbekistan! #lockdown

<< Society is not only real; it’s fundamental. We can’t live without it. And now we’re beginning to understand that this “we” includes many other creatures and societies in our biosphere and even in ourselves. Even as an individual, you are a biome, an ecosystem, much like a forest or a swamp or a coral reef. Your skin holds inside it all kinds of unlikely coöperations, and to survive you depend on any number of interspecies operations going on within you all at once. >>
