Activists protest govt move on RTI - News India

Wednesday, July 26, 2006 (New Delhi):

Activists backing the Right to Information Act are protesting the government’s move to weaken it.

Aruna Roy, who leads the campaign and anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare have brought the fight to Delhi. Hazare led a delegation to Rashtrapathi Bhavan.

They said the government has turned the landmark law upside down and wanted to know why the cabinet decided to file notings out of RTI.

Activists say, the Right to Information Act is not a witch-hunt.

Meanwhile, the government has issued a clarification regarding file notings under the RTI Act.

According to a release, the Union cabinet last week approved an amendment to Sec 2 (i) (a) of the Act that provides file notings of all government plans, schemes and programmes that relate to development and social issues be disclosed.

Only a small portion of file notings now remains exempt from disclosure.
