BHUBANESWAR: The state unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday demanded that regional political parties in Odisha must also be brought under the purview of State Information Commission (SIC).

Reacting to the recent decision of the Central Information Commission (CIC) to bring national political parties under the RTI Act's ambit, party's state convener Nishikanta Mohapatra said, "We appeal to the SIC to take suo motu cognizance of the decision and declare the regional political parties in Odisha as public authorities."

"The SIC should also order the political parties to declare their sources of funding and expenditure," he demanded.
