Professor Prasad says it is a unanimous report from all the committee members.

“We do hope that the public will be able to see the 33 recommendations and we are also hopeful that the government will take into account those recommendations and we can begin a process of addressing comprehensively some of the issues that the auditor general has highlighted over the last several years.”

Prasad says they are hoping to start scrutinizing the Auditor Generals reports from 2010 to 2013 as soon as possible.
