May move court against CIC's ruling: MoS PMO
Earlier, the JDU, the CPI(M) and the Congress slammed the ruling saying the CIC exceeded its brief.

New Delhi: Opposition is growing against the Central Information Commission's order to bring political parties under jurdisdiction of the Right to Information Act. Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office V Narayanasamy on Tuesday refused to rule out the possibility of moving court against the ruling.

"We will see whether the ruling has gone against the RTI Act and if it has then I do not rule out the possibility of approaching a court on the issue," Narayanasamy told CNN-IBN.

Earlier, the Janata Dal United and the Communist Party of India - Marxist slammed the ruling saying the CIC exceeded its brief. "The CIC has acted outside its jurisdiction. The government should step in. CIC doesn't understand the politics of this country," JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav said. The Congress has also opposed the order. "Congress party is opposed to the decision taken by CIC. Political parties are not government bodies," party leader Janardhan Dwivedi said.

The CIC had on Monday said that since government subsidises buildings and facilities for political parties, they qualify to be termed public offices, which are subject to RTI. The ruling provides for greater transparency in the working of the political parties as now the public has the right to get information about their functioning and funding.
