Syed Kausar Abbas, Programme Manager of Centre for Peace and Development Initiatives (CPDI), has demanded to legislate Right to Information ( RTI) law in Punjab and Federal capital.
He said this while addressing a seminar on ‘Citizens Right to Information’ at Preston University.
The programme was organised by Centre for Peace and Development Initiatives and Freidrich Nauman Foundation (FNF) to engage youth in the campaign for promotion of Right to Information in Pakistan.
He said that the access to information of all the public documents is the fundamental right of every citizen. He said that the Government of Punjab has already legislated some other laws but Right to Information Law is still pending. He said that the Punjab Government must fulfil its promises of legislating Right to Information Law for citizens of Pakistan.
Kausar Abbas said that the budget expenditures of all departments should be presented on the floor of National and Provincial Assemblies after every quarter.
