Non-Himachali Priyanka Vadra moves to court against the RTI on her property



By NewsGram Staff Writer

Priyanka Gandhi has moved to Himachal High court to prevent the information regarding her properties being disclosed to the public.

Dev Ashish Bhattacharya had posted an RTI query in June 2014, asking copies of land records and other details regarding the properties owned by Priyanka Gandhi in Himachal Pradesh.

After, Himachal Pradesh state information commission ruled in favor of disclosing the information, Priyanka Gandhi has approached the high court to prevent disclosure.

In her writ petition, Gandhi has pointed out that Bhattacharya has no locus-standi to ask information regarding her property or the order that permitted her to purchase lands in Himachal Pradesh, as he is neither a Himachali nor a resident of Himachal Pradesh.

Previously, Gandhi had stated that if the information is disclosed then it may cause threat to her life.

A Different Take on Masculinity: Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota

Abhimanyu and Radhika are childhood friends. She has seen him grow from pain to pain without feeling it.


Once Salman Khans heroine in “Maine Pyar Kiya”, Bhagyashree’s son Abhimanyu is now out to make his quirky debut as a boy-man who cant feel any physical pain.

The trailer of his first film “Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota” has him bleeding through his head and nose as he walks down the street talking to us about the rare congenital disease that precludes pain.

The idea of not feeling any physical pain could serve as a decent metaphor for the desensitised times that we live in. But then I am not sure Vasan Bala, who has served as an assistant on dark films like “The Lunchbox” and “Raman Raghav”, wants us to assess his film as anything but what it is:a film about a guy who can’t feel any pain.

The protagonist’s ambition, perhaps echoing the modest aspirations of the film’s debutant hero, are severely restricted. So I suspect, is the appeal of this whimsical piece of cinema which also stars the very watchable Radhika Madan.

Abhimanyu and Radhika are childhood friends. She has seen him grow from pain to pain without feeling it. We see the defiant repudiation of pain in the film. But we aren’t really sure if the film would be a painless exercise. It seems to stretch one idea beyond endurance.( IANS)
