NEW DELHI, Nov 23 – With a former CAG official making fresh allegations about 2G allocation losses, Law Minister Ashwani Kumar today questioned the integrity of the government auditor and demanded that truth behind the CAG’s presumptive loss estimate of Rs 1.76 lakh crore be made public, reports PTI.
“Certainly some of the findings of the CAG have now become very doubtful. People are entitled to know what is the truth that has now come out,” Kumar told reporters outside Parliament House.
His reaction came after CAG’s former Director General R P Singh had questioned the body’s estimates of presumptive loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore.
“After completing the audit of Ministry of Telecom, which was under my direct charge, I prepared a draft audit report covering each and every aspect ... My report did not contain any loss figure,” Singh had said.
The Law Minister said, “I think the conversation between the chairman of PAC and CAG without knowledge of other members of the PAC should be made public.”
