Can’t bring political parties under RTI, Centre tells SC

Union govt. has argued that political parties cannot disclose their internal functioning and financial information under the Right to Information Act.

  1. The disclosure will hamper their smooth functioning and create a weak spot for rivals with malicious intentions to take advantage of.
  2. SC had earlier issued notice to 6 national parties, asking their inability to come clean and explain their hesitation to disclose complete details.
  3. The details will include their income, expenditure, donations, funding, including donor details, to the public under the RTI Act.
