HETAUDA: Bagmati Province’s Minister for Internal Affairs and Law Ganga Narayan Shrestha has stressed the need for collective efforts for the implementation of right to information (RTI).

An awareness program would be launched soon for the implementation of RTI, he said.

“RTI has yet to be fully enforced. The province has also been in the process for its implementation by making related acts. For it, there must be grassroots awareness.

The provincial body is tasked with establishing RTI among target people,” he said.
