AAP condemns proposed amendment to RTI act



New Delhi, The AAP on Thursday strongly condemned the proposal to amend Right to Information (RTI) Act, saying that it will give BJP a free hand over the Information Commissioners.

"The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is trying to dump the RTI act in the dustbin by amending it.

"As it gives BJP the power to alter the salaries and allowances of the Information Commissioners, the officers will always be worried at giving out any information against the Modi government," Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh told the media here.

Earlier in the day, Congress President Rahul Gandhi also slammed the BJP for believing only in keeping the truth hidden, and called on all Indians to oppose its move to amend the RTI Act.
