? for Modi The war on RTI and Lokpal

While your party claims to promote transparency, your government has proposed multiple amendments in the RTI Act. Transparency advocates say the proposed changes are dilutions in the law, removing accountability of many departments. You have also weakened the Central Information Commission by keeping vacancies pending. Is there a gap between your preaching and practice?
The Lokpal Act was passed in 2014. Why has the government still not appointed a Lokpal? And before you say the selection committee includes the Leader of the Opposition, and that there is none at present, nothing prevented you from amending the law, as you already did once, to bridge this problem.
