Staff ReportISLAMABAD: The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on Wednesday directed the government to end its policy of allotting two plots to government officials. The committee has maintained that the policy which was approved by Musharraf regime was violation of Article 25 of the Constitution. The PAC met again today to review the allotment of more than one plots and audit objections of the Housing Ministry. It further said that the Housing Ministry should make allotment of plots only under its own policy. The ministry, it said, doesn't need to allot plots under any other policy. The PAC also directed the Ministry of Defence not to allot agricultural lands to judges, generals and politicians. In addition, it asked the Housing Ministry to upload the data of plots allotted to judges, bureaucrats and other officials. Meanwhile, the Balochistan government submitted a list of federal officials and judges, who were allotted plots. The Quetta Development Authority (QTA) awarded plots to 19 officers and judges. But Additional Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa claimed that no government officer or judge was given any plot after 1985. The committee gave the Punjab government 10 days to provide a list of beneficiaries of plots. On the other hand, Auditor General today retraced its earlier statement regarding audit of Supreme Court’s accounts. He said that he had not audit objections to the Supreme Court. SAMAA
