The CPI today opposed the Centre's move to make the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) a multi-member commisssion.

"This move comes in the background of CAG reports to Parliament, which exposed the wrong policies of the government causing huge loss to the public exchequer amounting to lakhs of crores of rupees in 2G spectrum allocation and coal mines allotment. Everyone knows that the government is unhappy with the CAG reports," the party said in a statement here.

It is an effort to control the CAG in some way or the other, CPI alleged, adding that it needed a constitutional amendment, which was not easy in the present Parliament with UPA II having no majority.

"The very idea harms the interests of the nation. It is a narrow-minded thinking that breeds this type of shameful proposals," the communist party added.
