Political parties should implement RTI provisions

Written By Unknown on Rabu, 17 Juli 2013 | 22.23

MUMBAI: A day after the deadline for six major political parties to implement provisions under the Right To Information Act lapsed, citizens groups came together to demand that they appoint public information officers, as mandated by the Chief information Commission. As per the order, political parties should have not only appointed officials under the RTI but also voluntarily disclose information under section 4 of the RTI Act.

A note by the RTI campaign pointed out that parties had not challenged the order in court as yet, and had decided to amend the RTI act in the next parliamentary session, a move that was not acceptable to them. A public signature campaign petition initiated by the National Campaign for People's Right To information (NCPRI) has already garnered more than 67,200 votes across Gujarat against the proposed amendment.

The campaign is supported by former CIC Shailesh Gandhi and jointly led by prominent transparency groups including the Mahiti Adhikar Gujarat pahel and Saladi Gram Vikas Lok Jagruti Samit among others. Transparency in the functioning and funding of political parties is highly desirable and should be brought in at the earliest.
