Goa’s Information Commissioner quits

The Goa State Information Commissioner, Pradeep Padwal, on Thursday submitted his resignation to Goa Governor in the wake of the Supreme Court judgment on Thursday which inter alia stated that knowledge of law was crucial for Information Commissioners.

The appointment of Mr. Padwal was challenged by Right to Information activist and lawyer Aires Rodrigues on the same grounds in the Court of law. With this, the two-member Goa Information Commission has become headless as Chief Information Commissioner Motilal Savlo Keni had retired a few days back. — Special Correspondent
