Govt. is becoming uneasy because its officials are being naked in front of Public,they try their best to delay and evade RTI answers,they do not stamp RTI answers,they use dubios language in RTI answers,many time they do not even bother to answers.


RTI should be made powerful, not weakened.


It would be fateful day for all of us if it is weakened by the Govt. taking plea that it is being misused by Public or its officials get too busy in answering RTI queries.

I oppose such move whole heartedy and appeal to all my fellow brothers and sisters do the same.
