Now, Tha­roor’s Per­sonal Opin­ion

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Sud­denly it is fash­ion­able to have a per­sonal opin­ion. While inau­gu­rat­ing a na­tional sem­i­nar on Right to In­for­ma­tion Act ( RTI) in Thiruvananthapuram on Oc­to­ber 13, Union Min­is­ter Shashi Tha­roor said po­lit­i­cal par­ties should not be ex­empted from RTI. It was, of course, his “per­sonal view”.“The more trans­par­ent we are, the more we will re­gain the trust of the elec­torate. In the case of my own party, within the party, I re­spect­fully dis­agree,” said Tha­roor. Per­haps he is try­ing to pre­empt Rahul Gandhi’s next “is­sue-based in­ter­ven­tion”.
