It needs to be allowed to debate issues of bigger concern, he tells Speaker Om Birla.
Congress chief within the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, who can be the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), on Thursday wrote a letter to Speaker Om Birla, looking for his permission to take up the problem of vaccination.
The PAC often examines reviews submitted by the Comptroller and Auditor Normal (C&AG) to Parliament and different vital points associated to public accounts.
Mr. Chowdhury strongly argued that the committee needs to be allowed to debate issues of bigger concern in order that the federal government can act on its suggestions.
“There have been quite a few events prior to now the place, with the permission or the course of the Hon’ble Speaker, the PAC has met and brought up issues of bigger concern for dialogue, deliberation and making observations and proposals thereon to the federal government to behave upon,” he stated.
“At this time, the coverage in direction of vaccinating the folks for tackling the pandemic has grow to be central and of utmost significance. Because the lives and livelihood of the individuals are dependant on an efficient “vaccination coverage”, I’d request you to kindly allow the PAC to fulfill on the topic the representatives of the federal government ie, the Ministry of Well being, ICMR and others involved [By any mode either physical or virtual, depending upon the COVID situation.]”
