Opposing Commission of Inquiry ‘an excuse to evade accountability’: Firdous


ISLAMABAD (DNA) – Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Thursday strongly responded to the opposition parties – which gathered yesterday on a multiparty moot to devise a joint strategy against the government – for opposing the recently-formed Commission of Inquiry formed by the government to probe the utilisation of foreign debts by the two previous governments in the last decade.

“This is an excuse to evade accountability…They want to conceal the reality of the debt [taken in previous tenures of the PPP and the PML-N],” she stated on her tweeter account.

She said, while referring to the opposition parties, that they did not want national development instead they sought personal development.

Dr Awan said rejecting the National Development Council (NDC) was equivalent to hindering the state’s development and prosperity.

Recently, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced to form the commission to probe how foreign debts swelled to Rs24,000 billion in the last decade.
