Slamming the government for failing to fill the post of the Central Information Commissioner (CIC), Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) and the Lokpal, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday alleged that the NDA government was trying to "shield" itself from public scrutiny. Terming the government as "antifarmer" and "arrogant", Gandhi also accused it of bringing "achche din (good days) only for crony capitalists" and promised to take the party's fight to the people. "I bring to attention the deplorable lapse of the government.

 

The appointments are being delayed even as Modi had made many promises of good governance and transparency in the run-up to the 2014 polls," Gandhi said. "This government has made sure of the absence of the CIC so that the PMO is not accountable for violations under the Right to Information Act. They are brutally weakening the RTI Act," she said. Supporting the Congress president, the entire opposition demanded answers from the prime minister and later even staged a walkout. The government strongly rebutted Sonia's charges.
