CIC tells PMO to trace Emergency records

NEW DELHI: In a move that is likely to raise eyebrows, the Prime Minister's Office said it has no records of correspondence between then President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and then PM Indira Gandhi related to the proclamation of Emergency in 1975. The response was met with mild surprise by the Central Information Commission (CIC) that has asked the PMO to trace the records.....The issue came up after Aligarh-based Paras Nath Singh sought information related to correspondence between the PM and president on the Emergency. In its response, PMO officials said they were not able to locate records despite an "elaborate search".
