In an attempt to dig more dirt on the misuse of defence land, the Bharatiya Janata Party filed a Right to Information (RTI) on the details of defence land dealings that have taken place in the country in the last five years.

“I have filed a RTI seeking details of all defence lands which have being either sold, transferred or been given on a long lease to private players,” senior BJP leader, Kirit Sommaiya said.

Somaiya said he filed the RTI because there seemed to be blatant violations in the dealings.
Kirit also said he will visit the ministry of defence on January 19 to find out about such deals.
