Chaudhry: No transparency

THE dissolution of the Public Accounts Committee shows lack of transparency and accountability in the government, says Labour leader Mahendra Chaudhry.

He said with the dissolution of the committee, members of the public would not be able to know how their funds had been used by the government.

"Dissolving of the committee shows lack of transparency and accountability from government towards public funds," Mr Chaudhry said.

"For the past five years, government accounts have not been published, Auditor-General's report has not been published, there has been no transparency or accountability in the financial affairs of the government."
