Ex-CAG remarks on defence audit reports very strange: Cong

New Delhi: The Congress on Sunday described as “very strange” and “shocking” the reported remarks by Rajiv Mehrishi, who completed his term as Comptroller and Auditor General of India last week, that defence audit reports were not made available online as they should not be easily accessible to Pakistan or China.
Congress also asked if the earlier CAGs were compromising national security while uploading the reports.
“Though we submit our report before Parliament and the public accounts committee, it should not be easily accessible to Pakistan or China,” he was quoted as saying.
Asked about the remarks, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said, “CAG is a high constitutional authority and therefore, I am hesitant to use strong words”. He described it as a very “strange, astonishing and a shocking explanation”. (PTI)
