The cause of it is bribes. & this cannot be accounted nor they want it to be accounted. RTI will screw the bribe giver & taker.

Political parties are meant for forming Government. Running a Government is not a child play. It needs to be secretive also as and when required. All our Indian scriptures, Panchatantra stories, books and preaching on how to run government specifies this. By the end of uttering Bhavath Gita to Arjun, Lord Krishna also said the same, 'even good things needs to be preached in secrecy in right and receiving atmosphere'. Hence, keeping political parties excluded from the RTI is correct!

RTI in good hands and wise ppl. is a blessing but, in wrong hands it would turnout to be a curse.
In wrong hands PIL and RTI only slowdown the progress and corrupt the system to core.
