Thread: essential tool of democratic participation: Prime Minister

  1. essential tool of democratic participation: Prime Minister


    The right to development in a way has been strengthened by the Right to Information Act. This act, enacted by our government, is one of the strongest such legislations in the world. It is also an essential tool of democratic participation, through which the boundaries of the “rights approach” to development can be further extended. It brings in transparency and accountability into the development process. The combination of the National Rural Employment Guarantee and the RTI Acts provides a very potent base for expanding the rights of citizens vis-*-vis the state in ensuring equity and social justice. This is particularly relevant for the poor and vulnerable.

    Thank you Kushal sir,

    This is very great wordings from Prime Minister and a great scholar Dr.Manmohan Singh ji,

    It is very much motivating and energizing me and many RTI Activists and Applicants.

    Even after many good and motivating statements from the highest authorities and principled Politicians, what happens to the Information Providing authorities that at many level these Officers act totally 180 degree opposit to the very purpose of RTI Act and harrash RTI applicant as if the RTI applicants are doing some unsocial work.

    I did not mean that every PA is acting like this, but percentage of such PAs are more and it may reduce only with stringent action on PAs and Information Providing authorities who just want to harrash the applicant, and it also need a powerful clarification from Central/State Governments over such action of PIO/PA/AAs., who are harrashing RTI applicants, Who are giving wrong information/denaying information/incomplete information and CG should warn such Authorities that they have to under go the deciplinary and judicial actions.

    rakatkam.
