Bring political parties under RTI Act

Dear Editor,
It refers to a public-spirited BJP leader who is also an advocate approaching Supreme Court to put political parties under RTI Act. But already a petition of RTI-activists pleading to implement full-bench CIC-verdict of 03.06.2013 holding six national political parties under RTI Act is already pending at the Apex Court. It is noteworthy that law-making political parties have neither complied with CIC-verdict nor they have challenged it in any court. Even all efforts to amend RTI Act to keep political parties out of RTI Act has not been fruitful.
Ruling BJP should become a path-breaker by supporting the petition filed by its own leader for bringing political parties under RTI Act. Rather BJP and central government should approach Supreme Court for an early hearing and decision on two petitions in this regard now pending at Supreme Court.
