Prevent government from keeping political parties out of ambit of RTI.
The Cabinet has cleared the proposal to keep political parties out of the ambit of the RTI Act.
Dubious funding has been root cause of corruption in politics. If parties are under RTI, one can ask them the details of all donors, including those who donate less than Rs.20,000/-. Thus the parties will be forced to function on clean money and they will also not be under pressure to return favor to their dubious donors while forming various policies.
BJP has significant numbers in both houses and hence the party can effectively prevent the government from passing the amendment.
Also Narendra Modi Jee, you are believed to be a very strong leader (Iron Man) and hence we request you to take this tough decision.
