It could give solace to Mr. Manik Sonawane who had failed to get his name included in Haryana State Information Commission as State Information Commissioner by Search committee headed by Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda but now this appointment is his answer to Haryana government led by Mr. Hooda who instead of him rehabilitated Other Retired IAS Officer belonging to Schedule caste and a IPS (Retired) Officer of Rajasthan Belonging.
