The importance of audit of all accounts cannot be over emphasized and it is necessary that transparency can be got through proper audit of all expenses incurred on various schemes,projects,plans and works completed and performed by all departments like local and provincial,central and federal, private and public, autonomous and regulated organizations.
The district and city nazim system was firstly introduced by the dictator’s regime and the amount was allocated and provided directly by the federal government or the President of Pakistan himself. Provincial governments had no control over them but the city nazims were fully authorized to obtain funds direct from the President or federal government.It therefore becomes necessary to maintain the full and actual record of all exchequer received from all the sources and get them audited in order to see that the funds coming from the undeclared quarters or sources, have been spent honestly, free from all flaws,properly and appropriately.These funds provided belonged to the poor people of Pakistan so it is duty of every Pakistani to know that their money has been spent with out any irregularity and there lies no any sort of lacuna or lacking of appropriateness in spending of all funds or resources received from various quarters, during the both tenures of Nazims in Karachi,Hyderabad and other districts.As the huge amount was provided and the huge amount has lavishly been spent on all new schemes, it cannot be understood that such huge amount came from which source and organization. It is a common news to hear that for the development of Karachi, Hyderabad and other places, Rs in trillions had been provided direct to the Nazims. It is also necessary to check and audit the sources and application of all funds received and spent.
