New Delhi: The Right to Information (RTI) Act under which the letter written by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee regarding Home Minister P Chidambaram and 2G scam has landed in public domain is proving to be the albatross around the Centre’s neck.

Stating his opinion, Law Minister Salman Khurshid said, “Owing to the RTI many skeletons have tumbled out of the cupboard and hit the government’s image. So, the latter is now mulling over some amendments in the RTI Act.”

“Not only Congress leaders and other parties, but the judges too are of the opinion that there should be some amendment in the Act,” said Khurshid.

“The UPA government is proud to implement the RTI Act. The government would not do anything which weakens the law. But there is always a room for amendments and change in the law. The government is constantly monitoring the RTI. If required, there is a probability of amendments in the Act, said Khurshid.
