[IAC#RG] Fwd: RTI Commissioner protests playing national anthem for Vice President ?

In connection with CIC 12th RTI convention on 6 Dec, 2017 at Vigyan Bhavan, New Delhi

News is reaching us even in distant Kerala that a bold Central Information Commissioner of CIC had objected to various breaches of official protocol for Vice-President Venkatah Naidu who was Chief guest at their function.

Sources say that former IB director Shri Yashovardhan Azad, an ex-IPS, had objected to equating VicePrez with President of India for protocol, playing of national anthem twice for the arrival and departure of VP and seating arrangement of junior officers like Shri Ajay Mittal (Secy DoPT) on dias/stage along with Vice President.

Sources say CIC Azad who was to read the welcome address for VP boycotted the function which was read out instead by CIC Manjula Parashar.

Sources say CIC Azad was passed over for becoming CCIC in favour of the BJP's appointee RK Mathur.

Can this forum or other RTI forums shed some light on this ?
