News articles about the RTI Applications about Sonia Gandhi and Modi
It was astonishing to read articles in newspapers about the RTI Applications regarding the Sadbavhna yatra of Mr. Narendra Modi and also that of the medical bill of Ms Sonia Gandhi. The amount of Rs. 1880 was cited without even giving a thought to what the figure means. The RTI applicant and news service agency to whom the whole news item has been attributed have denied the facts. But, the whole visual media was shouting of the RTI Act in the context of the story. Indeed, it was good publicity for the RTI Act, however, such publicity of RTI is likely to bring more negative feel towards RTI.
