CALLING THE RTI Act a people’s revolution and saying the dream of ‘Digital India’ is closely linked with a transparent government, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Monday said government officials should reply to each RTI application, notwithstanding the kind of information sought.

Addressing the inaugural function of the 11th annual Central Information Commission convention, Singh said the home ministry was recently asked about the government’s action plan in the event of a “zombie or alien attack”, and he had ensured the query was replied to.
