30 JUNE 2013

RTIFED is in complete concurrence with the Press Release Dated 26 June 2013 issued by the National Campaign for Peoples Right to Information (NCPRI).

The RTIFED is extremely concerned to note that the Government is planning to promulgate an ordinance to amend the law of Right to Information Act retort to the CIC landmark order, which held that political parties are Public Authorities under the Right to Information Act 2005.

The RTIFED has consistently contrasting any move to amend the RTI Act, which has empowered the citizens of the country to meaningfully participate in governance of our democracy. We believe that the CIC order will go a long way in eradicating corruption and malpractices going on in the functioning of political parties, thus, ensuring transparency, and accountability and accountability towards the people – the real owners of the country.

The RTIFED vehemently opposes any proposal to amend or dilute the RTI Act. We hope that the political establishments will not, in any way, amend the RTI law and weaken the provisions of this legislation which empowers people to exercise their fundamental right to information.
