PAC must make executive accountable: Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla

New Delhi, December 5

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla today exhorted the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to act flexibly to match the expectations of people and stressed the wider use of technology to make its reports and observations relevant with the time.

He was addressing the valedictory session of the two-day centennial celebrations of the PAC.

“Over time, the relevance of the PAC has increased and people’s expectations have increased. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the PAC to evolve itself and be flexible in their processes,” said Birla.

Besides him, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairperson Harivansh Narayan Singh and PAC Chairperson Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury attended the valedictory session.

Birla said, “As part of our endeavour to ensure that the PAC works for the welfare of the last person standing in the queue, it should make the executive accountable for the development of the country and ensure transparency in the working of the government.” — TNS
