The RTI is by far the most important tool to exercise democracy in our country. It not only inculcates transparency but also accountability among the ones who are serving the nation. The proposed amendments to the RTI Act will dilute it. Since you represent our constituency in the Parliament of India, we request you to take a firm stand 'against' the proposed amendments, and show solidarity with your 'netizens'.
When a tax payer deposits taxes in the Government Treasury, we as individuals, salaried employees and corporate houses are expected to give complete disclosure about our financial statements. It does not end here, various Government Agencies also scrutinize the same even after a few years, thereby holding us accountable till that time. Does the same not apply to political parties? Do we not have any right to know about the functioning of our political parties? Can we not expect the same from you (read Political Parties and Government)? Honourable Minister, we aren't asking you to answer these questions to us, answer them to yourself. Period.
Take a stand against the proposed amendment to the RTI Act and make politics transparent!
