Thiruvananthapuram: The Legislative Assembly passed the resolution introduced by Chief Minister against the CAG report. The resolution pointed out that many of the points made in the CAG report are false and has no connection with reality.
The report was prepared without informing the government and without holding any discussions. It also said that CAG report’s observation that KIIFB takes off-budget loans is wrong and that the remark was made without any understanding of KIIFB’s financial model.
The Chief Minister’s resolution stated that it excludes the remarks made against KIIFB in the pages between 41 to 43 and the documentation regarding this in the executive summary.
Meanwhile, the opposition strongly protested against the resolution.
VD Satheesan stated that the Assembly has alredy discussed the first part of the resolution during the previous days. The part, which stated that the Assembly excludes the remarks made by CAG against KIIFB, is absurd. The Assembly does not have the authority to exclude portions from the report of CAG, a constitutional body. The constitution does not mention of such an authority anywhere. CAG report, once submitted before the Assembly, should go to the Public Accounts Committee. The PAC should take a final decision in this regard after listening to the arguments made by government and CAG.
Muneer said that CPM’s approach is to destroy all those who oppose them. This is the same approach that caused their downfall in Bengal and in Tripura, Muneer added while registering his opposition against the resolution.
