Union govt. has argued that political parties cannot disclose their internal functioning and financial information under the Right to Information Act.
- The disclosure will hamper their smooth functioning and create a weak spot for rivals with malicious intentions to take advantage of.
- SC had earlier issued notice to 6 national parties, asking their inability to come clean and explain their hesitation to disclose complete details.
- The details will include their income, expenditure, donations, funding, including donor details, to the public under the RTI Act.
