Not Tabling CAG Report In Assembly Is As Per Govt Plan?
Hyderabad, Feb 12 (Maxim News): It is customary to present the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) reports on the table of the Assembly on the last day of the budget. Today being the last day of the budget session of the Assembly, the CAG reports were not tabled this time.
There was a discussion in the Assembly lobbies on the issue of why these reports, which mirror the actual financial conditions of the state, stopped. Officials say that the CAG has not yet prepared the last year’s audit reports. CAG submits its audit report to the Governor at the end of January every year. These will be placed on the Assembly Table with the approval of the Governor. But this time it is the second week of February but the Governor has not received these reports.
Why the delay in preparation of CAG reports has become a hot topic now, in fact, the audit reports reveal all the financial status of the state. The government, which has been introducing a huge budget since the state came into existence, has shown a revenue surplus every year. But it was revealed in the CAG audit that it was all fake. CAG has pointed out in its report that Telangana is facing a deficit of Rs. 9 thousand crores in 2020-21. It has been revealed that it already owes Rs. 2.75 crores. Mentioned irregularities in various fields. So what is there in the audit report of march 2022..? has Telangana gone further into debt? Has the revenue deficit reached a more alarming situation? it is interesting. But, this time CAG has not released their reports so all these are left as questions.
Has the CAg delayed the preparation of the reports or has the government kneeled down to prepare the reports as per the plan? Doubts are appearing. While preparing the annual audit reports, the CAG first sends all the objections identified by them to the state finance department. Requests an explanation regarding them within the deadline, but the government delayed without giving these explanations. We are giving here,, we are giving that. This broke the preparation of CAG reports. As it is an election year, there are criticisms that the government has implemented this strategy to hide the situation of debts and not being able to pay salaries to the employees every month. A senior official said that even if it is stopped now, they can be introduced in the next assembly session, or else there will be a chance to give audit reports for two years at a time in the next budget session.
