Thanks Sarabjit,

This is yet again the corrupted, conniving media along with the
"powers that wanna be" who are "allegedly" trying to get pressure put
on to change the RTI act to make it less useful for the common person.

Govt. employees, like every one else , too have grievances and if
there is no mechanism that redresses that then they will use what ever
is available.

And as with all solutions the one they will follow isto through the
baby out with the bath water, leaving all the genuine concerned with
nothing but another begging bowl.
