The Indian Red Cross Society, Odisha Branch’s non-response to an RTI application seeking information regarding deletion of ‘Red Cross’ from 55 ‘Red Cross Blood Banks’ operating in the State has been resented by applicant Dillip Dashsharma, a senior lawyer.
“On November 28, 2017, I had applied to the Health and Family Welfare Department seeking some information regarding deletion of the term ‘Red Cross’ from the 55 Red Cross Blood Banks operating in the State. The department resent the application to the Indian Red Cross Society, Odisha Branch on December 20, 2017 asking to furnish information. Though six months have passed and many reminders sent, the Red Cross Society has not yet provided any response,” lamented Dashsharma in a statement.
