PAC WANTS PUTRAJAYA TO EXPLAIN RM800 MILLION FOR FLOOD VICTIMS?

The Finance Ministry and the National Security Council (NSC) will be asked by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to explain the RM800 million that was spent on flood relief efforts.
PAC chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed(photo) said the amount allocated was huge and as such, its management needed to be transparent.
"The RM800 million fund for relief is huge. PAC will ask the Finance Ministry and the NSC to explain in detail how the allocation will be channelled to flood victims," Nur Jazlan told The Malaysian Insider.
Nur Jazlan said the substantial allocation would require transparency and careful spending to ensure that the additional budget that is due to be presented in the Dewan Rakyat would not become an issue.
"The issue now is the additional budget, many parties are questioning why can't the government budget accurately.
"PAC will only call them to find out if the additional budget is really used in a right and transparent way," he said.
Nur Jazlan, who is also Pulai MP, said the move by PAC to seek an explanation from the ministry and the NSC, which is the agency in charge of disaster management, would also avoid confusion when the additional budget is presented.
The RM800 million allocation, said the PAC chairman, was to help flood victims but it does not include the expenses to be incurred in rebuilding the affected areas.
"This is only help for flood victims. It does not include costs for the re-development of the areas such as rebuilding of roads, reinstalling electricity and water supplies and more," he added.
