The Right to Information Act is the first significant achievement of the UPA government, Congress President Sonia Gandhi said on Friday.

“The enactment of the RTI is the first significant achievement of the UPA government. This is the first single piece of legislation to ensure transparency and delivery by the government,” Ms. Gandhi told a public rally here.

“Regardless of whichever government is in power, each citizen can by law put questions and expect answers from the government,” she said and called upon the people to make full use of the Act.

She earlier formally inaugurated the Regional Institute for Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS) here.
