Railways does not have the post of ‘Lok Sevaks’; response to an RTI query

Lucknow:  While people often call government employees as ‘Lok Sevaks’ (Public Servants), railways denied it has any working with it.

Blame it on “ignorance” or call it an attempt to say no to information sought under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, it gave a rather confusing response about transfer policy of ‘Lok Sevaks’ (Public Servants) working with it.  The information about the transfer policy of Railway employees was sought by Lucknow based popular RTI activist Ms.Urvashi Sharma. 

However to her utter dismay, Railways had sent a communication denying it has any ‘public servants’ working with it.  It also said that there is no relevance of such a question since it has no post of a ‘lok sevak‘!

Not only this, the response was sent in an ‘open’ letter format, which was handwritten in Hindi and hardly legible.
