Sonia Gandhi has slammed the Narendra Modi government in Parliament on Wednesday. The Congress president targeted the government over the 'failure of institutional mechanism' in the country. She said, "UPA government provided the people with this strong weapon (RTI) and the present government is trying to take it away from them. And at this point they might as well scrap the RTI Act. There is no provision in the act for the Govt to take over Commissions functioning in the absence of CIC."
