He still hasn't got the answers. However, OP Kejariwal will have his house.
An embarrassed urban development ministry, which had been accused of sitting on Kejariwal's house allotment letter, has finally released the orders.
The file – that had been stuck for nearly two months – moved on Wednesday, within hours of the CIC member filing an application under the Right to Information.
Sources said that a formal letter was sent to Kejariwal on Thursday informing him that the allotment letter was ready and he could have it collected.
This intimation was dated 2 August, the day he had filed an RTI application.
The information commissioner had been living out of a suitcase for the last eight months and is believed to have informed top government functionaries including the urban development minister in this regard.
But no one really could cut the red tape till the RTI application came.
