Maligning the CAG

We are dismayed and distressed at the reported statements by R P Singh, former director general (DG), Telecom Audit which has the potential of undermining the effectiveness and the credibility of the audit department. Without questioning his motivations, we condemn his action in the strongest possible terms.

According to him, the 2G report is not his report as he did not support the loss figures as contained in it. Obviously it is indeed not and cannot be his report. All audit reports are the Comptroller and Auditor General’s (CAG) reports and are submitted to the president and Parliament over the CAG’s signature.
