KPSC told to provide answer script to candidate 22.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The State Information Commission has directed the KPSC to provide answer scripts to candidates. S Pavan Kumar had filed an appeal before the commission when his application under the RTI Act seeking answer scripts was rejected by KPSC.

Kumar filed the application in May 2017 seeking his answer scripts and evaluation sheets which detail marks awarded for each question and the model answer sheet for the probationer's (main) examination held in September 2015. KPSC rejected the application stating that even the UPSC does not provide answer scripts.

After a detailed hearing, the State Information Commission quoted a Supreme Court judgement that an evaluated answer book becomes a record containing the "opinion" of the examiner. "Therefore, the evaluated answer book is also an information under the RTI Act,'' it noted.

State Information Commissioner N P Ramesh directed KPSC to provide information to the candidate within 30 days.

Council bypoll: Ibrahim files nomination 21.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Former union minister C M Ibrahim on Monday filed his nomination papers as the Congress candidate for the Legislative Council byelection scheduled on August 31. He is likely to be declared elected unopposed.

Monday was the last day to file nominations. Scrutiny of nominations will be done on Tuesday, and Wednesday is the last day for withdrawal of nominations. The bypoll is necessitated due to the death of BJP leader Vimala Gowda recently.

Opposition parties, the BJP and the JD(S), have not fielded their candidates as they do not have the numerical strength to win the seat. The ruling Congress has the majority in the Legislative Assembly and hence, it can win the bypoll easily. Members of the Assembly are the voters in the byelections.

Asked to comment on speculation that he may not be given a ministerial berth, Ibrahim cheekily said: "I've been made the bridegroom now and it's up to me to do the rest."
Ibrahim, if elected, will have a tenure of only 10 months.
