The Right to Information (RTI) act has been one of the better acts implemented by the government in recent times and has been primarily responsible in more open government.
Satish Shetty a social activist who’s been responsible for exposing multiple land scams through RTI unfortunately paid the ultimate price. Fearing an attack on his life, Satish asked the police for protection, but apparently the police delayed his request. Like the fate suffered by Satyendra Dubey and S. Manjunath before him, his whistle blowing irked the wrong kind of people and Satish Shetty was killed on his morning walk.
India has successfully transformed itself to a land ruled by the goon. It’s nice having the right to information but the right to life apparently is not guaranteed.
