Press Conference, Peshawar Press Club, 23 June 2014
“Putting People First” is the title of KP’s budget 2014-15. “Putting Accountability Last” may be a more apt caption suggested the Foundation based on its analysis of the provincial budget while presenting its key findings at a press conference in Peshawar. It criticized the retention of 67.42 per cent of the total development outlay of Rs.139 billion as umbrella funds. It demanded reasons explaining the government’s inability to utilize allocated funds, giving details of selected projects using budget figures and also evidence generated by citizen monitoring.
