ISLAMABAD - Federal Government has started creating hindrances in the implementations of the Public Accounts Committee decisions only because under the dynamic leadership of Ch Nisar Ali Khan the committee has not only cleared the backlog of almost two decades but also put on mat the people who were otherwise considered untouchables in the Pakistani society. Sources aware of the situation informed TheNation that the main reason behind the governments apathy and indifference toward the working of Public Accounts Committee was that the committee after clearing the backlog since 1988 to 2008 has reached the threshold of the beginning of the PPP coalition government and obviously the corruption-tainted government would not want to see the irregularities of the government highlighted. It was in this backdrop that the government instead of appreciating, what many terms extraordinary performance of PAC, was giving cold shoulder to it and delaying implementation on its recommendations. Sources said that Chairman Public Accounts Committee Ch Nisar Ali Khan in his recent press conference put the blame of non-implementation of PACs decisions on government and said that if this indifference would continue on part of the government then he would leave with little choice but to quit as PAC chairman. He also referred to some of the key findings of corruption scams involving billions of rupees by the PAC but the government was not implementing its recommendations. He also pointed out that PAC under his chairmanship had traced out embezzlement of Rs115 billion and also cleared the backlog of over 20 years audit but instead of implementing its recommendations the government was creating hurdles in their working. Sources aware of the working of PAC informed that the government was not taking the recommendations of PAC seriously and said that the orders of the committee, regarding action against three former Army generals and a bureaucrat for causing a loss of Rs1.82 billion to the national kitty due to their alleged involvement in NLC scam, was not implemented. In the case, the PAC directed Secretary Planning and Development and Division to make a reference to Secretary Defence in respect of three retired Army generals including Lt Gen (Retd) Khalid Munir Khan, former OIC NLC, Lt Gen (Retd) Muhammad Afzal Munawar, former OIC of NLC, and Maj Gen (Retd) Khalid Zaheer Akhtar, former DG of NLC, to immediately initiate disciplinary action against these officers in accordance with applicable rules for serious lapse in discipline, lack of transparency and blatant violation of government rules and regulations during their tenure in office as per specific charges spelt out in the Hamid Hassan report. Sources further informed that the government was firm not to let PAC work freely as from now onward the committee would be taking up the audit of the incumbent governments rule in the country and the Gilani-lead coalition government would not afford to have their irregularities traced out by the committee.
