Dont Leak information to Media: Venkaiah Naidu to MP’s

Vastavam web: Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu has requested chairpersons and members of parliamentary standing committees to chorus from offering to the media confidential data associated to panel conferences. In a letter to the panel chiefs, Naidu stated it has been noticed that the media has been quoting of their reportage the proceedings of the committees associated to the topic issues or the legislative payments below their consideration and examination.

“I urge upon you to impress upon the Members of the Parliament belonging to your Committee and participating in the proceedings to strictly adhere to the existing provisions/direction relating to confidentiality and refrain from premature divulgence of any information to the media, till the Reports are presented to the House,” Naidu stated. The letter assumes significance because the chairmen of each Public Accounts Committee (PAC) and Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology, who’re from the Congress celebration, had been at loggerheads with the BJP members of the panels over collection of the topics for committee conferences.
