Tahir asked if there was any country in the world, where the dam was built through donations? The PAC chairman on the demand of the members ordered the secretary water resources and planning division to investigate the matter.

Noor Alam Khan said the fact-finding inquiry should be conducted to determine how much money was spent on the advertisements and “how many facilities travelled abroad through the dam fund.”

The PAC chairman said the former chief justice of Pakistan Justice (r) Saqib Nisar will be summoned before the committee if financial ‘irregularities’ were found.
