Transparency Has Taken a Backseat -Says RTI Activist

news post by Sanjeev Rana on 14 Oct 2017,Saturday

RTI activist Commodore (Retd.) Lokesh K. Batra says he was provided details on the appointment of information commissioners during the Manmohan Singh era, but under the Modi government, there has been a marked change.

Over the last 12 years, deliberate attempts have been made to dilute and lessen the effectiveness of the Right to Information Act, according to RTI activist Commodore (Retd.) Lokesh K. Batra.

On the basis of the responses received by him from the prime minister’s office (PMO), the latest being on Friday (October 12), Batra has alleged that this marked reduction in transparency also extends to how the PMO under Prime Minister Narendra Modi responds to requests for information.
