PESHAWAR While rejecting the survey report of Transparency International regarding national corruption perception, Spokesman of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and provincial Information minister, Mian Iftikhar Hussain Wednesday termed it a conspiracy against the ANP-led provincial government, which is on forefront against the war on terror. Talking to journalists here at officers mess, the Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain offered the entire provincial administration for accountability and invited the TI to spend at least six months in Peshawar so that it could have better understanding of how the government worked. The TI national chamber in its National Corruption Perception Survey 2010 released on Tuesday had rated Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as the most corrupt province of the country. Mr Hussain termed the findings of the survey merely a propaganda launched by 'invisible vested interests to malign the provincial government, which according to him, was maintaining higher standards of transparency in its operations. He explained that the provincial government didnt claim that there was no corruption in its departments; however, he argued, There must be some solid evidence in support of such a big claim of rating the entire province as most corrupt. The incumbent provincial government, he said, international donor agencies had acknowledged the transparency in government affairs during IDPs crisis and even many were striking direct agreements with it. He challenged the methodology of the TI adopted for the conducting the survey, adding students of universities were given the task that ultimately served the vested interests by churning out a report of their choice. The minister opined that the TI allegations had been made to stain the credibility of the provincial government so that it could not receive foreign aid in days to come. The provincial government, he said, had a very clear stand on corruption, adding whenever there was evidence of corruption, the government showed zero tolerance. Citing the examples of two senior officers of the provincial government, who happened to be the close relatives of Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti and were facing corruption charges, the minister argued that inquiries against the officials were in progress. Similarly, Mian Nisar Gul resigned from the provincial cabinet, when he was charged in a kidnapping case, he said and added: This is something that shows that the provincial government in Pakhtunkhwa doesnt allow corruption in its ranks. To a question, the minister said that the provincial government reserved the right to question credibility of the TI and its functioning. He said the provincial government would look into every possibility to defend itself.
