Re: Testing RTI: Govt vs activists, Pricewaterhouse vs Google
The other day our hon'ble PM was unhappy at corruption problem when he spoke in a seminar of Justices and CMs. He should strengthen RTI rather than finding ways to dilute it. If really govt. is serious about containing corruption [which I doubt!], it should implement simple ways to forcefully and sincerely implement RTI. Statute in books is only first step. We have reams and reams of laws in the books, but the ground realities are totally different. Govt machinery cannot stop corruption. Its only empowered public [through RTI etc] that will reduce the problem to a great extent.It is only common man that is vicitim of corruption. Give him the authority and he will fight his own battle. Some misuse will be there, but every law [or any other thing]has this problem.
It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
