Andhra Pradesh Former Legislators Forum general secretary K. Subba Raju has criticised the Union Government for making allegations against the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG).

The CAG is a statutory body to observe the functioning of various government departments, verifying the expenditure auditing and pointing out the irregularities.

The Government instead of inquiring into the recommendations made by the CAG, was insulting the CAG official, he said in a press release here on Friday.

The Government should take measures to strengthen the CAG and instil confidence among the public on the proper running of the organisation, Mr. Subba Raju appealed.
