  2. KislayPandey-Rights to Information Act and excerpts from A Corruption Matters Advocate According to a very well-known and talented Corruption Matters Advocate Mr. KislayPandey­ Lawyer Supreme Court of India, “Right to Information Act gives a power to the ultimate king of Democracy- Citizens. They can make sure that the people they have sent to assembly (Political leaders) are working best for their benefits and interests and can raise their voice if that is not true. It is a revolutionary tool which, if used accurately, can bring a paradigm shift to the ethical practices and lower down corruption at a remarkable rate.” Three years before, Anna Hazare, a social activist and the members of civil society raised their voices to make a legislation called JAN LOKPAL BILL- a profound bill that can transfer the power in the hands of citizens. However, it was passed in 2013 after omitting some significant characteristics. Some truthful and honest whistle-blowers like Mr PrashantBhushan from AamAadmi Party and Mr. Subramanian Swami from BJP have used RTI in a very effective manner and exposed some biggest scams and sent offenders behind the prison bars. But, it is just an Ant in the forest. A main concern is that the whole forest is dirty and there is not a proper solution of it.
