GSRP urges President not to endorse RTI Act ‘Excluding Political Parties’

The Goa Su-Raj Party has urged the President Pranab Mukherjee not to endorse the central government -sponsored ordinance seeking to exclude political parties from the ambit of the RTI Act, 2005.

“Contrary to the stand taken by most national and/or state political parties, this political party which is the state regional political party of Goa commends the decision of the CIC to bring all political parties under the ambit of the RTI Act, 2005”, general secretary of GSRP Floriano Lobo said.

Anything less will offer political parties to misuse their funding, he said. This proposed malafide Ordinance must never see the light of the day if India wants to scale the heights on the super power of the world scale, the letter said.

In Goa, GSRP has also been strongly supporting social activists against the delay in filling vacant posts of information commissioners. Hundreds of cases are pending before the state information commission.
