Finally, at long last, the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy government has realised that there is no use going in for confrontation with the opposition and the provisions of the Right to Information Act. It has now decided to upload all the GOs and directions online so as to enable the people to access them. On Wednesday, it issued key orders to this effect.

The Jagan Mohan Reddy Government had earlier decided to discard the practice of uploading the GOs of the government on the official website www.goir.ap.gov.in.  A circular to that effect was issued by the Principal Secretary of the General Administration Department (GAD) of the state government Revu Muthyala Raju.  This created quite a furore in the state. The government has come in for severe criticism on this issue.

Waking up to the criticism, the government, in a major come down, has announced that the GOs would be uploaded on AP E-Gazette. Chief Secretary Adityanath Das has issued orders to this effect on Wednesday. But the government has clearly said that the personal details, expenditure, leaves and other details would not be uploaded.

The decision taken by the Jagan government has now put a lid on the whole controversy over the uploading of the GOs.  The public at large  are happy that the government has preferred transparency over dictatorial approach. The general public hope that the Government adopts a similar liberal approach on other issues too.
