ISLAMABAD Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on Friday formed another special committee to dig out alleged embezzlement in the sale of land by the Evacuee Trust Board (ETB) to the Defence Housing Authority (DHA). Earlier, on Thursday the PAC had constituted a committee to investigate matter regarding misuse of vehicles in all government departments and take steps to end this malpractice. The PAC constituting another committee also spotlighted the irregular appointments in the Planning Commission. The Chairman PAC said that this committee, to be headed by Zahid Hamid, will give its remarks before the PAC on ETB and Planning Commission. Chairman ETB Syed Asif Hashmi informed PAC that the Board had an agreement with DHA under which it provided 850 kanals of land to DHA in Lahore. DHA, he said, was to return 43 percent of Evacuees land after developing it but the authority returned only 25 per cent land. PAC also discussed that that under no rule, ETB was entitled to sale its land to DHA or any other department or authority. Ch. Nisar asked ETB to present its report before the committee as the properties of minorities is a sensitive issue. PAC also took strict notice of irregularities in appointments in Dera Unit Project, which was launched for the drought affectees in different parts of the country. It was revealed that several top-level appointments were made while going out of the way in the Commissions project and that the funds of Dera Unit Project were also misused. He also issued directions to the Commission to present the detailed report regarding the project in the current meetings as the Secretary Planning was on an official foreign visit. Ch. Nisar said that there was a dire need to take revolutionary steps for bringing change in all departments. Earlier, Asif Hashmi, Chairman Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB), said that he was ready for accountability in regard to the allegations levelled against him on account of his alleged involvement in irregularities. The committee reviewed the matter related to the sale of 843 kanal property by ETPB to DHA in Lahore at a throwaway price. PAC has also summoned the Secretary Planning Division in the next meeting.
