ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhary has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan's accountability policy is obvious that all citizens are equal before the law.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, he said investigations will be conducted and principle of accountability will apply, if there are allegations no matter these are against the leaders of the opposition, a member of the cabinet, a bureaucrat or any officer of a department. He said this is the change of the system that was promised. The powerful people are not above the law.

Fawad Chaudhary said that in the case of Ring Road project, the Prime Minister was informed that it was extended by twenty three kilometers to benefit the housing societies. With this decision, the government had to pay twenty billion rupees for the purchase of additional land.

The Information Minister said according to the preliminary investigation of the Commissioner Rawalpindi, the former Commissioner and other officials were involved in the scandal.  He said no evidence about the involvement of any minister or adviser has so far been found in the matter.

Chaudhary Fawad Hussain said it is only in the government of Imran Khan that investigations are conducted when allegations surface. He said this was not the case in the eras of PML (N) and the PPP as all the hue and cry of the media then only used to fall on deaf ears.
